5 Innovative new tech gadgets that got our attention in June 2023

Can you believe we’re coming to the end of June already? As we enter the second half of the year, consider these new tech gadget releases to help bolster your lifestyle for the rest of 2023. From household gadgets designed to make your life easier to innovative devices which will take your hobbies to the next level, here are five tech releases that caught our eye in June 2023.


Dyson V12s Detect Slim Submarine

You’ve most likely seen all the rage surrounding Dyson’s dry vacuum online when it was first released—and now, the leading household appliances brand has taken it up a notch! This month, it announced the launch of its first all-in-one wet-and-dry cordless vacuum cleaner. That’s right, the Dyson V12s Detect Slim Submarine is here to solve your cleaning problems in just one machine.

The Dyson Submarine™ wet roller head has been engineered to deliver the right amount of water to effectively clean up spills, and remove stubborn stains and small debris such as food crumbs. Using a combination of hydration, absorption and extraction technologies, the device has an eight-point hydration system and uses a pressurised chamber for even water distribution and optimal saturation across the full width of the roller. Eight water jets, evenly spaced along the roller, release precisely 18ml of water every minute to wash floors evenly without leaving excess wetness. It comes with a 300ml clean water tank which covers flooring up to 110-metre squares. 

The cleaning head also comes with several features. Firstly, the Acoustic Dust Sensing makes sure that your house is getting the deep cleaning it deserves. With an LCD screen showing the size and number of particles, users are able to count microscopic dust particles with a piezo sensor, which automatically increases suction power (delivering up to 150 air watts) across different floor types and dust amounts. Further, the Dyson V12s Detect Slim Submarine comes with a Hair Screw Tool that works to detangle long hair and pet hair with ease.

Price: RM4,499 (Dyson V12s Detect Slim Submarine) | RM4,899 (Dyson V12s Detect Slim Submarine Complete)
