LG Hom-Bot - THINQ compatible robot

« Previous Next »

LG has unveiled its first THINQ compatible robotic vacuum cleaner at CES 2011. Feature wise the the Hom-Bot, as they call it now, is more or less the same as the Roboking VR5901KL we have seen and used, but a few extra gadgets were added to comply with THINQ, the new smart home standard of LG. One of the notable addition is the front facing camera that captures live video of the robots surroundings. The images are transmitted via wifi to a local or remote computer or mobile device. This allows the owner of the house to have an eye on the house while away. The robot can be controlled by a mobile phone or tablet. Hom-bots can even start the dog feeder machine, although it is unclear what a dumb dog feeder has to do in a smart home.
While LG Hom-Bot seems to be a product ready for market, LG is still waiting for feedback to decide whether to start sales of the robot.
