31 July 2019 - For Dyson engineering manager Yvonne Tan, work is her “playground” – a creative space to invent, tinker and bring ideas to life.
Take its revolutionary Dyson Digital Motor (DDM), billed as the “Ferrari of home appliances”. It is smaller, lighter, cleaner and more power-efficient than conventional electric motors. Spinning at 2,083 revolutions per second, the motor powers Dyson’s popular cord-free vacuum cleaners, Dyson hand dryer, the latest hair styling product Dyson Airwrap hair styler and Dyson supersonic hairdryer, which is actually faster than a Formula One engine."Before this, it was just your conventional hairdryer. No one thought about having a small motor that powerful in a hairdryer. What’s more amazing? It is made in Singapore,” said Yvonne. She revealed that over half of the supersonic hairdryer’s technology and design was conceptualised right here on our shores.Looking beyond existing technology
