iRobot launches the Braava floor mopping robot
I guess you can say that technology has certainly made our lives a whole lot easier over the years. Imagine if you had to iron your clothes the old fashioned way, it would have taken you a whole lot longer to go through a pile of shirts than with today’s steam irons with Teflon-coated undersides that make them glide over your clothes as though you were an ice skater performing an Olympic routine. The vacuum cleaner is another home appliance that has definitely gotten a whole lot smarter, and iRobot has been at the forefront for quite some time now. Their latest device is known as the iRobot Braava Floor Mopping Robot which will arrive in Braava 320 and Braava 380t models.
The iRobot Braava has been specially designed to systematically and efficiently dry or damp mop the entire floor – taking just a single pass to do so. It is capable of automatically dry- and damp-mop hard floors via a couple of cleaning modes, ensuring that dirt as well as the numerous colonies of dust bunnies will remain under control at all times. Braava makes use of disposable or reusable cleaning cloths which can be attached and removed in a jiffy. In fact, using the Braava is a cinch – all you need to do is to push a button, and the Braava will start to perform a mop up operation on your behalf, and once it is done, it will not just lay at the last spot but rather, return to where it began.
You need not worry about the iRobot Braava creating a din whenever it works – it will function in a whisper quiet manner, featuring a soft-touch bumper as well as quiet motors, so that it will clean up without disrupting your daily activity or sleep. The Braava 380t is slightly different since it includes expanded features such as the Pro-Clean System which will dispense liquid throughout the cleaning cycle, a fast charging battery, and a Turbo Charge Cradle Accessory that automatically juices up the robot in just a couple of hours. The asking price for the Braava starts at $199 a pop.
