Draft of my letter to the Dyson Guy – James Dyson, inventor of the Dyson Vacuum
Dear Dyson Guy,
Thank you for working so hard and coming up with a series of elegant vacuums that I’m guessing have had a huge influence on the industry. Thank you also for the beautiful fan you invented that has no blades and looks like sculpture. I don’t have one but hopefully one day I will.
I think it’s time for you to consider taking technology up a notch and applying your engineering skills to help out the female population. Not that vacuums are only used by females but they have probably been your main audience. I don’t remember the last time I saw my husband vacuum. Now that I think of it, maybe you could work on a vacuum design that would appeal to the guys too.
But more to the point, I think you are a terrific candidate to develop a mammogram machine that is more comfortable that the current vice grip we ladies have to endure. Clearly you are fond of circles as your vacuums have that pivoting ball and your portable fans are quite sexy and curvaceous. You have a great talent for how the human body relates to an industrial product that requires movement. You could revolutionize this aspect of women’s lives and help the medical community, bringing more dignity to what is currently an extremely awkward but necessary and important procedure.
I hope you’ll give it some thought.
