Dyson

noun novel creation
Changing something that had a once concrete meaning or way of being done; Rethinking the norm or being unconventional in thought or action.
 
Can be used to describe action done, or steps taken to do something. If you maybe didn’t do something as planned, but it worked very well and wasn’t the normal way of doing things. If you “pull a dyson” you may have had a surprisingly good outcome from rethinking, or doing something completely opposite of how everyone thought it was done.
Etymology : From last name of Sir James Dyson, creator of the Dyson Vacuum
Source : October, 2011. Teammate at track practice jumped far in a long jump using an unconventional looking jump. On looking teammate says, “Dang. I think he just pulled a dyson of a long jump.”
