ISG PIRO Windoro

Windoro, the first household robot to clean windows was showed to the public for the first time exactly one year ago at IFA in Berlin. It created a lot of debate among robot enthusiasts whether it makes sense or it is a total time waster. I personally believe that it is not for everyone (like a Roomba or Neato), but there is a specific group of people who could benefit from such robots. First of all you need to have large window surfaces without breaks, and the outer side must be hard to reach. If you can reach one spot on both sides of the window, you can put the Windoro to use.

This year Windoro was there at IFA with a product ready for the market. There were some changes in Windoro since I last heard about it during CES earlier this year. The most notable is that it got a new battery to provide longer battery life with a single charge: now it works for 1.5-2 hours instead of one.

Windoro, for those who are not familiar with the product, is a window cleaner that goes on the two sides of the window. The two halves are held together by a strong magnetic force (through the glass), therefore the single pane windows cannot be thinner than 5 mm, while the maximum thickness of the multipane windows is 25 mm. Windoro works in a methodical way, so it recognizes when done, and returns to its original position. With a small addon (included), it is capable of cleaning the inner sides of the frames as well.

Both of the halves of the robot require their own power that is provided by batteries. They work together, but split the work. The inner part is responsible for navigation and drive, while the outer part does the cleaning. The cleaning unit has four rotating microfiber pads that are removable for easier cleaning. This unit is able to dispense the special Windoro cleaning detergent as well.

Windoro will be available in grey, red and yellow colors.
