Floorbotics claims that the floorbot uses an intelligent navigation system that only cleans areas once. The robot has a 40min run time with one battery charge (4hour recharge). The floorbot has a 1.2 liter dirt container. Its diameter is 350mm and it weighs 6.9KG. It seems to use mainly IR sensors to navigate.
Floorbotics also features an industrial floor vacuum called IVAC with a bigger dirt container (4l) and a longer battery time.
The floorbot is not on sale yet. The price is supposed to be around 1,500AUD(~1,000USD).

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.
