Dog breath-vapored and finger-printed windows, shaving-creamed and water-spotted mirrors are irritating, but seldom rise to the level of must-clean more than monthly. Actually, I rarely clean the bay windows or sliding door glass unless company comes and the streaking that remains makes me wish I'd left them dirty. But if I had a robot to clean the buggers, it might just change my view about the whole process. Alas, here's the Winbot 7 by Ecovacs....
A professional window washing robot!

Yes, the Winbot is clinging to the window by itself. Its suction cups, vacuum pump, and anti-slip treads allow it to remain vertical and slide effortlessly across your window. Here's the 'mysterious underbelly' of the bot...

You can see the suction cups and the tread. Now look at the larger micropad in the front of the bot; that, along with the Winbot's own cleaning solution, washes your windows. And the smaller micropad on the rear side is what dries your windows. No streaks. Windows clean in a matter of minutes and the bot even revisits more stubborn streaks.
The Winbot comes with a 10-foot electrical cord for operation; in addition, a suction-backed battery pack is included in case of a power outage (so the bot doesn't fall off the window).
Watch the brain of this little bot in action...
You know, it was the big torrey pines and the mountains beyond that were the biggest selling point of this house - the views I loved. It's time I started seeing them clearly. How about your views?
