I like the idea of those robotic vacuum cleaners that you can have just zip around and vacuum your floors for you. I also like the idea of a remote controlled vacuum cleaner that I can use to chase the kids and pets around the house. Samsung has a new vacuum cleaner in Korea that combines a video robot with a cleaning bot.
The device is the VC-RL87W and it is a typical vacuum robot that has a video camera on it as well. That camera can shoot footage over to a smartphone or a computer allowing the person to remotely control the vacuum. The bot also has a mic.
The mic means you can talk to people using the vacuum as well. The vacuum feature has turbo mode and edge cleaning modes. It will sell for 799,000 won and there is no word on it coming to other countries at this time. My kids would actually clean if we had one of these.
