New robotic cleaner launched - 28/02/2011
A new domestic cleaning device could help improve carpet cleaning and hard floor cleaning standards.
Samsung believes the Navibot Silencio will take the hassle out of domestic cleaning as householders will simply be able to press a button and enjoy automatically cleaned floors.
The robotic cleaner has a special scheduling option which means that it can even clean floors when owners are not at home so they can ensure their carpets are regularly cleaned.
"We are pleased to offer UK customers this great new product that will lessen the burden of everyday household chores," explained Joe Oram, floorcare product manager, Samsung Home Appliances.
He added: "With vacuuming made this easy, the NaviBot Silencio is certain to become a necessity for anyone who wants to take the chore out of household cleaning."
The new device used a camera and several sensors to make a virtual map of rooms and calculate the quickest and safest route.
According to TechRadar, the £500 vacuum has yet to be officially tested on pets but has proved surprisingly popular with some cats.
