KOREAN MANUFACTURER Samsung showed off one of its newest household gadgets, the Navibot automatic vacuum cleaner, at a London event last night.
Closely resembling the Roomba, the Navibot uses an upward facing camera to get an idea of the room layout by mapping the ceiling. This, in conjuction with over 50 other sensors allows the little guy to get in around all the clutter and furinture without breaking anything or falling down the stairs.
According to Samsung, the Navibot takes about two hours charge and can last for about 90 minutes on a charge, but if that isn't enough time, it'll return to its charging dock before it runs out of power and then return to where it left off when it's fully charged again.
The standard version will set you back £399 while the premium model will cost an extra £50, but gives you a scheduler and a few other added features. Both will be arriving in the UK next month. µ
