LG Hom-Bot Square arrived to the US

LG Hom-Bot Square

The news that LG brings the Hom-Bot Square to CES just arrived before the show. Although I have seen the robot in a private presentation at IFA in last September, I went to see it again.

Since IFA, the Hom-Bot Square went on sale in France and Italy, and those who know French (or likes to use Google translate) can already read a great review about it at Kelrobot.

The new Mirra 530 was also on display on iRobot's booth at CES. As I posted earlier, Mirra is the new pool cleaning robot line of iRobot that will be available internationally.

Samsung Smart Tango Corner Clean at CES

Samsung Navibot Corner Clean

As I have reported earlier, Samsung was preparing a new robotic vacuum cleaner, the Samsung Smart Tango Corner Clean (or Samsung Navibot Corner Clean as they might call it outside of South Korea) for CES 2012. Unfortunately Samsung decided not to release any official information about it beyond those few product images.

There is no need to risk our lives on the top of a ladder to clean the gutter any more because iRobot Looj 330 can clean them automatically. Looj is not a new product at all, it has bee in iRobot's portfolio for years, but it was often overlooked behind the Roomba and Scooba robots. Just before CES 2013 iRobot has announced the newest version of the series, adding that the downsized robot will be available internationally. The robot is 6 mm (1/4 in) slimmer and narrower than it's predecessors what makes it suitable for gutters in use in Europe as well.

Solar-Breeze 3rd generation

Although Solar Pool Technologies, Inc is not among the exhibitors of the now opening CES but they have scheduled the announcement of the 3rd generation Solar-Breeze robot for this very busy and important day. The new robot brings improvement on operation time and on the longevity of the product. The robot was changed in six eight areas, the two most important are the following:

LG at CES has announced today the same Hom-Bot Square model I have seen and tried at IFA in Berlin in last September. The new square like shape provides better positioning of the side brushes making the cleaning of corners a lot easier and more efficient. The Hom-Bot Square has got a new top mounted camera that performs much better in low light situations than earlier LG robots.

RobotBG is live from CES

RobotBG has arrived to CES

After one year and a long Transatlantic flight RobotBG.com is back in Las Vegas to cover all the bits and pieces of the robotic novelties from the halls of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). We have already seen that Samsung will have something exciting new to check out, but we have an appointment to iRobot as well to see the two new outdoor robots. I expect LG to bring it's HomBot Square to the new world after it has been announced at IFA in Berlin a few months ago.

Besides the new gutter cleaner robot, iRobot has introduced a new autonomous pool cleaning device the Mirra 530 as well. The robot, being the first member of a new lineup cleans the bottom, walls and stairs - including the waterline - of in-ground residential swimming pools. The new iAdapt Nautiq system helps the robot determine the size and shape of the pool to optimize the cleaning pattern. The built in filtration system circulates 265 l (70 gallons) of water every minute and can collect all debris from the water down to 2 micron in size.

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.

Smart Tango Corner Clean

Samsung Smart Tango Corner Clean

In preparetion for CES 2013 Samsung has released some product images of its new robotic vacuum cleaner the Smart Tango Corner Clean. It's general shape remains the same as that of the last generation, but the side brushes got a new position: instead of being on the main body of the disk shaped robot, now they are fitted on two pop out arms (Pop-out Brush, as Samsung calls it, one on each side). This allows the brushes reach deeper into the corners than before. The Smart Tango Corner Clean seems to be the answer to LG's HomBot Square announced in last September just before IFA.
