WISP

One-Handed Broom

Spotless Sweep

This household essential just got a sweeping makeover.

WISP’s one-handed broom is armed with dense, short bristles that stay flush to the floor. And the bristles are electrostatic too, so they’ll attract pet hair, dirt, and even glass into its foot-controlled, hands-free dustpan. It’s thorough, which means fewer passes with the
broom.

Eben Dobson is an avid golfer (nicknamed “Wisp” for his small stature and fluid swing) who designed his first prototype to pick debris off of a golf course. It worked so well that he decided to retool it for indoors, corralling dirt off of difficult surfaces (e.g. carpets, tiles, wood, furniture).

The dustpan creates a tight seal against the ground, so you’ll sweep into, not under it. And Eben even thought to tackle smaller jobs, with the mini WISP. It’s small enough to fit in a glove compartment or office drawer for on-the-go cleaning.

Whatever you’re keeping clean, WISP will help you do a faster, easier, more complete job.

    A question: if the electrstatic bristles attract things like pet hair, wouldn't they tend to get cluttered? How do you get the cat hairs, etc., off the broom and into the dustpan? If you need to bend down to rub it against the side of the dustpan (as the video suggests with the smaller brush), is that defeating the purpose of the one-hand idea?

    Good morning, @Peter, and thanks for your question! We built a comb right into the WISPpan, so people can clean their broom without having to bend over. Just run the bristles through the comb, and all of that pet hair and debris will fall right into the pan. Regarding your second question: the regular-sized WISPsystem and miniWISP are meant to be used differently. The miniWISP doesn't reach to the ground; it's designed for smaller cleanups within arms reach. Hope this helps!

    Hi Arianna,

    This looks wonderful, but instead of making a mini set, I'm wondering why you didn't just make the handle of the larger one removable?

    Thank you.

    Hi @Julie, thanks for reaching out! The WISPbroom and the miniWISP are entirely different sizes. The head of the WISPbroom is around the size of a regular household broom, and is built to clean larger areas. The mini is designed to slip into small spaces for easy, convenient, on-the-go cleaning of smaller spots. While a removable handle is an intriguing idea, if we left it at that, the miniWISP would lose a lot of its functionality, and vice-versa. Hope this answered your question. Thanks again!

    @Arianna Interesting response BUT... Anyone ingenious enough to come up with the "Wisp" should/could be ingenious enough to provide a connecting piece-- even if a narrowing piece is needed. The narrowing piece has two "female" ends of different sizes to make the two gadgets into one. Result would be a "three-for" rather than a "Two-for". Product becomes more versatile.

    Hi, ok so I am trying to understand what the advantage is to your product...basically, the mechanism of the foot pedal thing eliminates the line you usually get when you sweep?

    Hi @Joy. Yes, it eliminates the line, and it also all-but eliminates the need to bend or crouch or kneel to handle the dustpan. Because our dustpan is foot-operated, it's much easier on the body, physiologically, than standard dustpans. Thanks for your question!
