Windoro window cleaning robot

Think of this bot as a roomba not for your floor, but for windows. The Windoro bot comes from some scientists working for the Pohang Institute of Intelligent Robotics in South Korea.

The robot is essentially two modules that stick together through the glass using magnets. Yes, it isn’t the best design, but at least it’s a start. Once they perfect the technology, this thing will be cleaning large office building windows easily.

Floor-wiping robot is like a cylon worm that evolved from the Swiffer

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on May 7th, 2009


The Fukitorimushia floor-cleaning robot wipes instead of vacuums, like an inchworm with a cylon eye. Designed by Panasonic, the little robot is wrapped in a nanocloth sleeve, which collects dust and debris as the robot crawls, worm-style, across your floor.

Yes, what we have here is the swiffer evolved. Its also has sensors to seek out dirt, so it will focus on problem areas first, then move on the assorted crumbs. Nothing on price or availability yet.

The Baby Mop makes tots earn their keep

The Baby Mop makes tots earn their keepWhy did I not think of this? With the Baby mop, having a baby means never having a dirty floor again. It’s brilliant! They call them rugrats because they are always crawling all over the floor anyway. Junior can make himself useful while he’s whining about that overflowing diaper. Put some elbow grease into it, give it a little drool for that extra shine.

It lets you get on with neglect while baby learns a work ethic. Child services may not like it, but I bet their floor is filthy. Too bad there’s no purchase information. Probably just a gag. Too bad, cause I think some swiffer pads on the opposite side would complete the suit.

RC sweeper mop makes cleaning fun
Over at Evil Mad Scientist there is an easy DIY project that will make cleaning fun and better yet, it might encourage your slacker kids to help out a little. Hit the link if you want to see how simple it is.

Basically an unprinted circuit board is attached to an RC car of your choice which is used to mount a dust mop. After that it’s just cleaning and play. This has to be dirt cheap to produce in a factory. Remote controlled cleaning would sell a bunch of cleaning supplies. They got everyone to buy swiffers after all. Check out the video below.

Nokia’s flexible cellphone rolls up, stretches

Nokia’s flexible cellphone
Nokia’s new Morph concept phone is a futuristic beauty. The idea is that it would use nanotechnology to give it a flexible body with a transparent display. It would feature the ability to re-shape itself to the user’s needs, which is a quantum leap away from today’s solid and chunky phones.

The electronics inside would be transparent and flexible as well, so that the whole phone could be twisted and stretched into bracelet shapes or even a tablet. Thanks to nanotech, it would even clean itself. It was developed with some help from Cambridge University, and can be seen at the MoMA in New York. One day even this will seem obsolete, but for now, it’s the future. The future looks awesome.
