You thought it was something Hollywood dreamed up: home robots driving you to work or cleaning your house, helping you remember appointments and commitments – but it’s more reality than science fiction.
Check out the latest techno-gadgets and home robots that can make your life more comfortable, more convenient and more secure!
Dyson 360 Eye
Made by Dyson, this clever cleaner uses an “eye” to navigate 360 degrees around the rooms in your house. It can even get into crannies because it’s smaller than any other robot vacuum on the market. The Dyson 360 Eye was 18 years in the making and will clean for 45 minutes before heading back to its charging station.
Floor Scrubbing Scooba 450
Not only does this floor-scrubbing robot sweep, pre-soak and scrub your floors, it gets rid of 99.3 percent of household bacteria (Hello Kitchen!). The three-cycle process ends with a good scrub from brushes spinning at 600 RPM and a final squeegee. The UK-made iRobot Scooba 450 is available through Amazon.
The sit-down mower may have met its match in the RoboMow RS630. The robot mower has a powerful grass-cutting system and is also equipped with a rain sensor so if the weather turns, it will return to its charger and wait for things to dry. And the best part? You can control it from your smartphone.
This one cracks us up, and not just because of its hilarious name. This sneaky alarm clock runs and hide from you once it sounds the alarm. Why? So you can’t turn it off, of course! The Nanda Clocky is available from Amazon and Target.
This robot-like robot is billed as “your smart little companion.” He (we think it’s a he) talks and follows you around and like Siri, can give you recipes on demand, hard-to-ignore reminders (“Time to take your meds, Frank!”), read bedtime stories to your kids (complete with video) and more. Check it out.
If little Zenbo is too much, you can still get Siri-like personal assistance from the Amazon Echo. The best thing about the Amazon Echo is its ability to connect to the growing number of other smart devices (see below), enabling control with voice commands rather than by using an app.
