iRobot Looj 330

We are just a few days away from CES, the largest consumer electronic trade show of the year, so from now on we can expect the new robot announcements to arrive. The first in the line was iRobot that introduced the third generation of its unique gutter cleaning robot. The iRobot Looj 330 helps house owners to clean the gutters without all the hassle and risks that are usually involved in the process. The Looj can clean 1.8 m (6 ft) of straight gutter every minute up to ~60 m (~200 ft) with a single charge of the battery.
Looj uses a high speed rotating auger to blast leaves, dirt and clogs away while automatically sensing the type and amount of debris to adapt the cleaning program. The detachable handle doubles as a wireless remote control that allows the robot to work in a distance up to 15 m (50 ft).
The size of the main body was reduced by approximately a quarter of an inch (0.6 cm) that allows the Looj to fit into more gutters worldwide. The 7.5 cm (2.93 in) wide and 5.05 cm (1.99 in) high Looj 330 will be the first gutter cleaner officially sold outside of the US.
Looj 330 is designed to be waterproof in up to 20 cm (8 in) of water, so it can be safely cleaned with running water.
Looj is already available in the US from iRobot.com for $299.99 and will arrive to select countries during spring of 2013 for an expected retail price of €299.99.

Press release: 

iRobot introduces new Mirra™ 530 Pool Cleaning Robot and takes Looj® 330 Gutter Cleaning Robot international

Mirra 530 provides an easy, energy-saving solution to pool cleaning.

BEDFORD, Mass., January 4, 2013 – iRobot Corp. (NASDAQ: IRBT), a leader in delivering robotic technology-based solutions, today announced the Mirra 530 Pool Cleaning Robot and Looj 330 Gutter Cleaning Robot. These robots – and others – will be displayed at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, being held January 8-11. iRobot can be found in South Hall 3, upper level, booth 30665.

“Mirra 530 features the latest in pool cleaning technology and an easy-to-use design, bringing yet another state-of-the art solution to iRobot’s line of home robots,” said Jeff Beck, chief operating officer at iRobot. “This is also the first time that our outdoor robots, including the award-winning Looj 330, will be available internationally, a huge leap forward for the fast growing robotics industry.”

Mirra deep cleans any type of in-ground pool surface and water without using the pool’s filtration system, hoses or booster pumps, which results in energy cost savings from running these pool systems less frequently. Mirra 530 provides complete pool coverage and a thorough cleaning through its iAdapt® Nautiq Responsive Cleaning Technology.

Features:

  • Dual top-load filter canisters for easier and faster emptying of debris.
  • Modern styling and aesthetic.
  • iAdapt Nautiq allows the robot to size up the approximate dimensions of the pool - then choose the optimum cleaning cycle for maximum efficiency.
    • Provides the most thorough cleaning by making multiple passes over the entire inside of the pool, floor to waterline, including walls and stairs.
    • Constantly responds to its environment by navigating obstacles, changing directions when necessary and making sure not to tangle its 60-foot floating power cord.
  • Self-contained vacuum, pump and filter system works without suction lines or other modifications to existing systems.
  • Pumps and filters 70 gallons of pool water per minute.
  • Reduces heated hot spots and keeps chlorinated water evenly distributed.
  • PVC active scrubbing brush lifts dirt, algae and bacteria off the pool floor and walls, including the water line where oils and bacteria can build up. Fine filters capture debris as tiny as two microns.

iRobot Looj 330 cleans gutters on its own at the press of a button.

A CES Innovations honoree and Edison Award nominee, Looj 330 takes a dangerous job and does it for you, preventing overreaching and repeated trips up and down the ladder. Looj uses a high-velocity, four-stage auger to blast away leaves, dirt and clogs while brushing gutters clean.

Features:

  • A four-stage auger spins at 500 RPM to blast away leaves, dirt and clogs.
  • In CLEAN mode, Looj automatically senses and adapts to debris, providing the most effective cleaning.
  • A 7.2V Lithium-ion battery provides superior performance.
  • A scraper boosts cleaning performance and clears a path for the robot.
  • A low-profile design enables Looj to fit in more gutters worldwide.
  • A communications range up to 50-feet between the robot and remote control handle allows Looj to clean long stretches of gutter without having to move the ladder.
  • Interchangeable auger flaps allow for best performance.
  • Waterproof in up to 8 inches of water and easy to clean with a hose.
  • Cleans up to a 30-foot section of gutter in 5 minutes on average.
  • Cleans 200 linear feet per battery charge on average.

Mirra 530 will have a suggested retail price of $1,299.99, and Looj 330 will have a suggested retail price of $299.99; both outdoor cleaning robots will be available in North America and select countries worldwide beginning Spring 2013 – check global.irobot.com for specific availability. Looj 330 is already available for sale in North America at iRobot.com.
