Robot vacuums have been on the market for quite some time – so why doesn’t every household have one? Well, there are still quite a few limitations with these gadgets, and some people still see them as nothing more than a relatively useless novelty. In many ways, they’re right. Typically, robot vacuums are overpriced, weak, and prone to getting stuck in tight spots.
Not only does the Neabot solve most of these problems, but it also delivers superior quality at an affordable price. Right now, these vacuums are selling on Kickstarter for $369. Just give you a sense of how that compares to the competition, other robot vacuums with less advanced features can sell for twice that amount, or even upwards of $1000.
That being said, the Neabot is more than just a cheaper version of the Roomba. It delivers everything you need in a robot vacuum and provides several additional features that make life more convenient. The Neabot’s claim to fame is that it’s the first truly “hands-free” robot vacuum system. This is because it features a self-emptying dustbin system. With this system in place, you won’t have to worry about getting all the filth out of the vacuum itself. The vacuum returns to the dustbin when it has completed its job and empties itself. This means that all you need to do is open the dustbin and place the bag in the trash.
Combined with scheduled cleaning sessions that you can program yourself, this means that you can keep your space clean without even having to lift a finger. The Neabot is capable of operating independently for weeks without any intervention. You can tell the Neabot exactly where you want it to go, and you can even tell it to stay out of certain rooms. As long as your space is less than 2150 square feet, the Neabot can do this all on a single charge.
In addition, the Neabot brings smart features to your surfaces, such as sensors that automatically tell the vacuum to increase suction when traveling over a carpet. In total, there are three different suction strengths, ensuring a deep clean – regardless of how filthy your surfaces are or what kind of floors you have. Utilizing a Z-shaped movement pattern, the Neabot covers as much surface area as possible. If the Neabot runs into tricky terrain – like edges, walls, or cliffs – its sensors automatically prevent the Neabot from damaging itself by ramming objects or falling down stairs. A HEPA filter is another interesting addition to this new device.
Perhaps the biggest barrier preventing mainstream consumers from purchasing robot vacuums is the price point, but Neabot seems to provide even the most advanced features without breaking the bank. Check out Neabot’s Kickstarter page, and you’ll find that it has raised over three times its original funding goal. Thanks to innovative new devices like this, robot vacuums might be much more common in the next few years.
