Concept Solution

Dyson blend n go is a single served blender used for making smoothies or healthy drinks. It serves up to 25-oz and focuses on instant control of the blender, portability and easiness to clean. Unlike other blenders, Dyson blend n go has curved OLED screen and LED indicator for easy control, a travel container to take the drink anywhere and a large bottle opening for easy clean.

LED and OLED Function

The LED indicator glows from left to right, indicating the direction to twist the container from the base.

The curved OLED screen shows the speed level of the blender. As you twist the container to the left, speed increases while red glows more to the left.

Portability

The Dyson blendngo container can be used as a cup itself with dedicated lid coming together. 
While the container fits perfectly with one hand, it also fits pockets at the side of any bag packs and cup holder inside the car.
