HOM-BOT Turbo+ is the phone controlled vacuum cleaner of your domestic dreams
If there’s one downside to the holiday season it’s knowing that you have to clean up all that shredded wrapping paper and the fallen pines from the tree. Fortunately next year our gadgets will be able to handle that for us too, as LG will be showing off its HOM-BOT Turbo+ robotic vacuum cleaner at CES 2016, which you can control using your smartphone.
The HOM-BOT Turbo+ heads up an upgraded range of CordZero vacuums that LG will be showing off early next year. The little robot’s flagship feature is the world’s first augmented reality view which you can observe through your smartphone. From there, you can issue real-time commands for the bot to go and clean a particularly area just by tapping on your screen.
The vacuum cleaner also uses its vision system to find its way through your home without crashing into obstacles and can also keep track of which areas it has already cleaned. If you’re into your vacuum tech, LG states that its new Smart Inverter Motor is 76 percent smaller, 65 percent lighter and 24 percent more efficient on average than conventional vacuum motors.
The HOM-Bot Turbo+ also pulls a double shift as your home’s security guard. It can send pictures from inside your home straight to your smartphone, if it senses any movement while you are out of the house.
LG will be unveiling additional details about its robot vacuum cleaner at CES 2016, which is scheduled to run from January 6th to 9th.
