New Electrolux Trilobite 2.0 Vacuum Robot

New Electrolux Trilobite 2.0 Vacuum Robot
 
 


Elextrolux anounced a new version of the Trilobite. The green-metallic Trilobite 2.0 is programmable like a VCR and can clean at pre-set times. Its new sensors lets it deal with stairs. The metallic silver-green Trilobite 2.0 can be found in shops from the middle of May in Europe. Its recommended retail price is around 1400 EUR.

The first model, the Electrolux EL520A Trilobite Robotic Vacuum is starting to ship on Amazon.com June 1st with a hefty price tag of $1,799.99.

We reported about the Electrolux Trilobite Vacuum Robot last year in June.
There is already another Vacuum robot on the US market for quite a while, the iRobot Roomba.

Unless Amazon's Trilobite Price-tag of $1,799.99 is a typo (which it is not), why is this robot 10 times more expensive than the Roomba ($159.99) ?

Update 06/01/04:
Read Answers to why the Trilobite is so expensive.


The only big feature difference I found is that the Trilobite can recharge itself. The robot finds its way back to the charging station and automatically docks-on. On the technical side the Roomba uses a combination bumper sensors and a infrared sensor to detect it's surroundings. The Trilobite uses ultrasound like a bat at 60khz as a sensor.
Both vacuum robots look pretty similar, maybe the Electrolux one looks a bit slicker, but is it worth 10 times more money? If you know a good reason for the price difference please email us.

So Amazon.com is not even starting to sell the latest version. They offer the orange Trilobite, which is the first model.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
