More information about Final Jeopardy:

James Dyson is a British inventor and founder of the Dyson company; best known for its vacuum cleaners that use cyclonic separation (so that the vacuum cleaner would not lose suction as it picked up dirt). It also did not require the use of expensive replacement dust bags. Another product of his is the Dyson Airblade hand dryer which is now found in many public restrooms worldwide.
