Dyson Big Ball Cylinder: The Vacuum Cleaner That Can’t Be Knocked Over

The greatest annoyance about vacuuming is not the chore itself; it is the machine topping over. Sounds familiar? Of course it is. It could very well be the number one issue with any vacuum cleaner and it is also the one problem Dyson determined to cross out. Introducing the Dyson Big Ball Cylinder, a vacuum that cannot be knocked over. Well, actually, it can be knocked over, but it will self-right when that happens so you can go on doing your chore without throwing up your hands in despair. There’s no voodoo involved here, neither is there a gyroscope or motor to right the toppled ball-like body. The Dyson Big Ball Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner self-righting ability is the result of a clever design that leverages on the curved body with a Continue reading Dyson Big Ball Cylinder: The Vacuum Cleaner That Can’t Be Knocked Over

LG HOM-BOT Turbo+ Robot Vacuum Lets You Use Your Smartphone’s Camera To Tell It Where To Clean

The thing about robot vacuum is, it is not as smart as you think. So, before it gets its long overdue AI to take over your domestic helper, you will need to give it a helping hand, such as pointing out to it where are the places you want it to pay more attention to. Such is what the newly introduced LG HOM-BOT Turbo+ Robot Vacuum Cleaner is capable of. Leveraging on augmented reality, you simply use the camera of your smartphone and tap on the part of the room that requires extra cleaning, and HOM-BOT Turbo+ will proceed as commanded. This feature will come in handy when there’s a particular dirt spot created by, say, dirty boots.

Thinking Cleaner Wants Turn Your Roomba into One That’s Connected

Having a robotic vacuum cleaner like the Roomba is like unleashing a robotic servant without supervision. The only consolation is, it won’t stage a revolt, but that also means it is pretty unintelligent. However, that is set to change if Netherlands-based outfit Thinking Bits have their way. Their invention, called Thinking Cleaner, aims to add WiFi and Apple HomeKit to your exiting Roomba, in particular the 500/600 and the 700/800 models, turning it into a connected robotic vacuum cleaner. The electronics required to get the magic going are packed into a thin replacement faceplate which will replace the stock Roomba faceplate.

Dyson’s First Robot Vacuum Cleaner Has 360-Degree Vision For Navigation

some must be thinking: with so many electronics giants making robot vacuum cleaner, why hasn’t big name like Dyson jump on the bandwagon yet? well. you see Dyson is the like the Apple of home appliance world. they take painstaking effort to make sure they get it right, or at least ‘right’ in the eyes of the company. so here it is, after expending sixteen years and an astronomical sum of nearly $47 million, Dyson has finally taken the wrap off its first robot vacuum cleaner, dubbed the 360 Eye. being a Dyson product, you can expect two things: meticulously engineered on the inside and pretty on the outside – both which you will find in the Dyson 360 Eye.

Samsung VU7000 Motion Sync Upright Vacuum

we often view upright vacuum cleaner as a design of the bygone era. these days, we have more furniture around the house which makes hose-type or robot vacuum cleaner a logical choice, but Samsung’s new VU7000 Motion Sync Upright Vacuum wants to break that notion by offering a two-in-one upright. it is an upright that you may have accustomed with, but features a handheld vacuum that can break away from the VU7000 to deal with the ‘last mile’ in a vacuum cleaning job, sucking in dust and dirt from those hard to reach corners. the handheld comes fitted with its own motor and dust cup so you can reach out to ceiling corners to get to those free-lodging cobwebs or combing under low-lying furniture, which are pretty difficult tasks with traditional hose-type vacuums.

LG Smart HOM-BOT Square Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

while the Jetsons family futuristic lifestyle is still far from becoming a reality, we think LG Smart HOM-BOT Square Robotic Vacuum Cleaner is one-step closer to that reality. yes. we realized that the product name is a mouthful, but it is for good reasons. this latest iteration of the robotic vacuum is strutting its stuff at the IFA 2013 and as its name suggests, this sleek robotic cleaner sports a more logical design approach with a squarish form that should allow it to reach out to typical right angle corners far better. to top that up, there’s the redesigned brushes that are 1.5cm longer to ensure dust and dirt in even the tightest corners can be whipped out and into the vac. the onboard dual camera gets an update too – they are now smarter and faster to enable more efficient cleaning. these cams are essential for the bot to snoop out your pad, scanning the ceilings, walls and floors (even in the dark) to form a ‘smart map’ where it will use to navigate around.

Samsung Smart Tango Corner Cleaner Robotic Vacuum

Samsung Smart Tango Corner Cleaner Robotic Vacuum
the recently wrapped up 2013 International CES is not just about gizmos and gadgets, it is also the stage for advanced home appliances such as the Samsung Smart Tango Corner Cleaner Robotic Vacuum. like all robotic vacuum cleaners, the Smart Tango still maintains the ‘traditional’ circular design but adds a pair of “pop-up brushes”, enabling the robotic vacuum to whip our dirt and debris from those otherwise hard-to-reach corners. do not confuse the “pop-up brushes” with the regular brushes that most (in fact, all) robotic vacuum will have.

usually, we just dump our vacuum cleaner into the storeroom after using but not for this particular machine – affectionately dubbed as the million dollar vacuum cleaner – from Northern Virginia-based GoVacuum. whether do the world need a million dollar vacuum is beyond us but a word of warning though: before it could suck your home’s flooring squeaky clean, it will suck away a million dollars off your bank account and probably leaving your bank account squeaky clean too and with a regular all-metal vacuum cleaner clad in the shiny golden goodness of 24k gold plating.
