When you spend money on a fancy robot vacuum, the last thing you want is to see a bunch of dirt that's left behind for you to manually clean up, and that's what Samsung is trying to eliminate with this device.
But perhaps most impressive of all is the addition of Amazon Echo support to the VR7000.
The new design is aimed squarely at consumers who demand better automated cleaning.
China eyes 2018 for moon landing, 2020 for Mars mission
China is setting its eyes on the moon and Mars, announcing an ambitious program that it hopes will make it a leading space power. It also said China plans to launch its first Mars probe by 2020 to carry out orbiting and roving exploration.
Samsung didn't mention the price or availability, but it will show off the Powerbot VR7000 at CES 2017, which starts on Tuesday, January 3rd (yep, that's in just six days). The demo will take place at the Samsung booth on Level 1 of the Las Vegas Convention and World Trade Center. This is achieved by placing the unit's wide 11 inch (288mm) brush - the widest among leading brands - close to the front, so when the unit reaches the wall it can easily gather dust and hair. The vacuum's smart features are also meant to increase performance. It can also work around small items less than 0.4 of an inch in diameter, and clean within a half inch of walls. Some other notable features include Visionary Mapping Plus and FullView Sensor 2.0 that will help the machine memorize the trickiest of contours in the room. For instance, when it moves from a hardwood floor onto a carpet or rug, the motor adjusts suction power to the surface for optimal performance. The new Powerbot VR7000 is said to be smaller in size and features attribute to clean the deepest corners which its predecessors lack a bit.
"The POWERbot VR7000 keeps up with the floor care needs of today's busy families", Samsung Electronics President of home appliances Byung-Sam Seo said in a statement. Samsung has announced plans to show the device off next week at the Consumer Electronics Show.
The Powerbot VR7000 is Samsung's the newest top-of-the-line robo-vac, and it'll work with Amazon's Echo devices right out of the box. "The POWERbot™ VR7000's navigational features and sensors combined with slim design and increased suction power help make sure the job gets done".
