Electrolux of Sweden introduces Vaccuum Robot -- Trilobite.
The press-release says its the first. Well we do not think so the Roomba is on the US market for quite a while.
Buy the Electrolux Trilobite® High Performance Robotic Vac at Hammacher Schlemmer for $1,799.95.
In any case its still cool!
The Trilobite vacuum cleaner is 13 centimeters high and has a diameter of 35 centimeters, which means that it can even clean under beds and tables. The Trilobite can “see” with the aid of ultrasound – just like a bat. The system allows it to quickly detect a dog’s water bowl, legs of chairs, walls and other obstacles. Once detected, the Trilobite will calculate a new path. Near stairways and other places where there are no natural obstacles, you place special magnetic strips to prevent the Trilobite from passing through.
The Trilobite is a completely new product compared to the prototype that was presented in 1997. It has automatic charging, an LCD display, and the option to choose between three different cleaning programs (normal, quick, and spot vacuuming). In today’s Trilobite, dust is collected using rubber lamellae and is accumulated in a dust box that is easily removed and emptied (no dust bags are needed).
No Info yet, when the Trilobite hits the US market.
