ARMADILLHOSE / Vacuum cleaner


Vacuum Cleaner is a device that we deal with every day. and with the improvements of technology over the years many enhancements have happened to it. Its strident sound has become less and less and ... .But one of the main problems which has not been paid enough attention to, is its long hose that causes many problems.Regarding this matter, we came to design a new hose so that can be easily used with flexibility and take less space and had a better function at the same time.we have been inspired by armadillos.His gorgeous anatomy lets the body stretch and shrink and this is the idea which lead us toward this inspired nature design.
