LG RoboKing vacuum

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on July 4th, 2011

The Roomba is pretty cool as far as robo-vacuums go, but you can’t exactly have a conversation with it. What kind of vacuum bot doesn’t even talk? LG’s latest self-diagnosing robotized cleaning assistant seems much cooler. The RoboKing VR6172LVM will cost 779,000 Won ($730), and has a low noise 48dB design.

It can run diagnostics at the press of a button and then tell you if any components are broken. But it won’t help you fix it. Oh well, it’s still progress.

The Zamboni Vacuum cleans your desk

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on January 19th, 2010

Hockey fans will like this one and what the hell, it’s been snowing lately everywhere, so this product seems very timely. This Zamboni ice resurfacer truck vacuum is the perfect way to clean those crumbs from your desk.

That’s where you eat right? Of course it is. And those orange cheetos crumbs are starting to pile up and create a martian beach. There’s no price listed yet, but whatever it costs, I’m sure it’s worth it.

Electrolux vacuum is so quiet it packs an iPod dock and speakers

Electrolux vacuum so quiet it packs an iPod dock and speakersElectrolux just launched a commercial vacuum cleaner so quiet that it features an iPod dock and speakers. The “UltraSilencer” is the first such vacuum in existence. The company even went so far as to conduct a lab study to prove that “music assisted vacuuming increases the number of nozzle sweeps, improves the cleaning result and leaves a general feeling of happiness.”

We say it just takes the boring out of vacuuming. Why it’s as if Van Halen or Pink Floyd were cleaning your house right by your side. Awesome concept.

Samsung Furot II Robo-Vac

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on September 17th, 2009

Samsung Furot II Robo-VacThe Furot II was unveiled last week and it’s no surprise that it will be competing with the Roomba, trying to get it’s share of that robo-vac market. It features a built-in camera to help it avoid obstacles while keeping your floor clean. The camera also allows the Furot to be aware of its location so it never goes to the same area twice unless it is needed.

The battery will give you 90 minutes of cleaning time and if it goes beyond that, the Furot II has a memory, so you can recharge it and the Furot will pick up where it left off.

Mobile phone-controlled vacuum cleaner

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2009

Mobile phone-controlled vacuum cleanerSouth Korean telecom company KTF just announced a cleaning robot that can be controlled by a 3G cellphone. The Roomba can’t do that, now can it? The robot is called the CW100 and is the result of a collaboration with Microbot.

It’s a “smart” vacuum, like the Roomba. It can be controlled by phone, which the Roomba can’t, unless modded to do so. It uses an onboard video camera to send live images to the mobile phone, so if you see an untidy spot, the user can remotely control it using the keypad and clean it up.

Roomba gets hopped up on carpet dust, trips home alarm

Roomba gets hopped up on carpet dust, trips home alarmRoomba owners should really shut their bots off before leaving their house and arming the alarm system. Here’s why. A Roomba in a Denmark home got all hopped up on dust and dirt and tripped the motion sensors. It was just jonesin’ to snort some debris while its owners were out on the town.

The alarm was tripped, and the authorities were automatically phoned. They arrived to see that the little bot had gorged itself in a shameless and lonely orgy of filth. Otherwise all was well.

TriVac blower/mulcher/vacuum makes rakes obsolete

TriVac blower/mulcher/vacuum makes rakes obsoleteHow many times have you seen landscapers just blowing leaves from one spot to another, not really accomplishing anything? Usually they just blow them on someone else’s property and they’ll go back and forth like that until fists eventually fly, or two grown men end up fighting in a pile of leaves. Not a pretty sight.

This tool will eliminate any and all hassles when it comes to leaf blowing/sucking/mulching and you won’t even need your rake. The TriVac blower, mulcher and vacuum by Worx promises to make the leaves leave with as little work as possible. It lets you switch between blowing and vacuuming on the fly and it weighs just eight pounds, allowing you to operate it with just one hand. It will mulch leaves as they are sucked up. This may be the final blow in the battle to rid our planet of dead leaves, which have an annual failed invasion force once a year.

Raycop vac kills germs & bugs, looks alien
The Raycop vac looks like a weird alien stealth ship. This is the mothership that slowly approaches the carpet, casting a long, slow moving shadow that puts fear into bugs and germs. It‘s the Raycop anti-bacterial vacuum, now available in the U.S. and ready to shine it’s ultraviolet light on all anything small and nasty. This thing means business, with a 360-beat-per-minute vibrator that can shake all those mites and germs loose from the fibers they cling to.

Those creepy things invading your home will be dead in no time. It will set you back $250, but knowing that tiny germs are living out a Spielberg movie and getting sucked up by your vacuum mothership? Priceless.

USB vacuum mouse for neat freaks

USB vacuum mouse for neat freaks
Someone had to do it eventually. The question is why? Because they can, is enough of a reason apparently. They took a simple 800dpi laser mouse with scroll wheel and combined it with a miniature vacuum cleaner. It’s got a power switch on the side for turning the vacuum function on and off. Problem is this mouse needs to be connected to a USB port in order to get enough power to run the motor.

The dust reservoir can be accessed in the back-end of the mouse, but being so small, you would probably need to empty it very often. If you are a real clean freak, this is the mouse for you. You’ll be able to clean your mousepad as you click.

Issey Miyake unveils futuristic handheld cleaner

Posted in Vacuum by Conner Flynn on February 17th, 2008

The future of vacuums
The Wind, Dyson DC16 handheld cleaner looks like it’s a Sci-Fi ray gun from the future, but you are more likely to see Han Solo cleaning up the Millenium Falcon then shooting lasers with this thing. The device is the love child of Miyake designer Dai Fujiwara and James Dyson. They apparently had too much to drink and started brainstorming about how sexy they could make a vacuum.

The result is a sexy new handheld carpet sucker at an affordable price of $194. It’s got a great steampunk look and a trigger. Need I say more?
