Ecovacs Robotics, a company, specialized in domestic robotics, presented at CES Las Vegas a new model of its popular WINBOT range. The new robot is called WINBOT X. And that is a wireless robot for window cleaning. Yes, as you read it, you do not need cables. It works with battery and provides more efficient cleaning of the crystals since it can move with greater independence. WINBOT X can clean even large windows of up to 4 x 4 meters. For this reason, it has been awarded the CES Innovation Award in the category of Appliances. The WINBOT X robot will reach the market at the end of June 2018 with a price still to be determined.
It may sound a little weird to have a robot to clean the windows. But anyone doing the cleaning of their house knows that it is one of the most tedious tasks in the home. Also, a few years ago we also saw vacuum robots as something rare and costly. And today many users have one at home. Now that these have gotten into our homes, it is time for another type of robots to try their luck.
Battery to get further
Robots such as WINBOT X, a robot that is dedicated to cleaning windows. Although there are already several models that we have on the market. Also, the WINBOT X stands out as a wireless robot. This model does not need a power cable. So it can get farther away and clean bigger crystals. For this it is equipped with a rechargeable battery, being able to clean glass surfaces challenging to reach both indoors and outdoors.
First, WINBOT X measures the surface to be cleaned and then selects the most appropriate cleaning route. As we mentioned, the robot cleans windows of up to four by four meters. Thanks to the elimination of the cable, the WINBOT X robot can move freely on the surface to be cleaned, even on frameless glass surfaces.
Undoubtedly many of you are thinking, and what happens if you run out of battery? The robot integrates a flexible safety cable that is attached to the glass using a suction cup and communicates with the WINBOT X via Bluetooth. That allows the system to react directly to pressure problems and protect the device from falls.
In short, an interesting and useful robot. If you are impatient to have this robot, you should know that the WINBOT X will go on sale in Spain at the end of June with a price that has not been disclosed.
