You live in a strange era of consumerism when a vacuum goes on tour.

"With the release of the new DC 15 they've done it again — this time replacing traditional vacuum wheels with a ball, making it impossibly easy to twist and turn around furniture, pets, and that stray lip balm you never can quite manage to pick up off the floor.
But you should try one out for yourself. (Really, now. Would you buy a dress without seeing how it fits?) Vacuum yourself silly at the Dyson Technology Test Drive Tour, an interactive exhibition housed inside a 90-foot yellow ball. Check out the variety of tech-friendly activities — a 3-D video presentation, a microbiology exhibit (get set to cringe over all the tiny critters living in your carpet), and a living room-style obstacle course.

The best part? Everyone who shows up will get a chance to win the latest Dyson vacuum.

Will becoming a cleaner person make you a better person?

Heck, yeah. There's a sucker born every minute, and, thanks to Dyson, you won't be next.

Dyson Technology Test Drive Tour, W. 62nd Street, between Amsterdam and Columbus. April 22-24, Fri. 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sat. & Sun. 9 a.m.-6 p.m. " -- Daily Candy
