The Dyson DC16 Animal Handheld Vacuum Cleaner ($200) is an animal of a machine for those of us who live with one (or five). Designed to suck up stubborn pet hair, the DC16 features twice the suction power of other handhelds, as well as a crevice tool for getting in those hard to reach spots. The battery life isn't ideal (six minutes or so), but, thanks to its lithium ion charge, it reboots super quickly. A smart addition for pet owners everywhere.
