Neato XV Signature Robot
Vacuuming is something that most of us have to do, and unless you home
is covered in hardwood floors and has no pets, the odds are good that
you do it on a regular basis. It's not really a fun thing to do, but it
has to be done. That does not mean that it has to be done by a human.
Robot vacuums are, in and of themselves, nothing new, but until now the
market has been a bit limited. A new company is looking to move into the
arena and offer consumers a new choice in robot vacuuming. The company
is called Neato Robotics, and they specialize primarily in making chore
The team there is offering two models for consumers to choose from,
the Neato XV Signature and the Neato XV Signature Pro. These models,
which will be out in early April, and will come in at a price point
between $399 and $449, depending on which one you buy. They are designed to
get the work done,and return themselves to the charging dock, without
any human intervention. See, who said your toys won't put themselves
In the release the company described the robots abilities in the following terms, "Unlike other robot vacuums that bounce around a room in a random style,
Neato’s advanced laser-guided navigation automatically maps a room to
choose the smartest cleaning path. Its Smart Sensor technology
automatically detects and avoids stairs, and doesn’t bump into furniture
like other robots do. It’s even smart enough to return to its base to
recharge and then resume vacuuming where it left off."
The systems will also come with special filters for those of you with allergies.
