iClebo robotic vacuum: the basics

The three vacuums made by iClebo are the Smart (priced at $599), Arte (priced at $499), and Pop (priced at $399). Each vacuum has a shortest charge time of 110 minutes, a longest cleaning time of two hours, and contains a battery that charges on a base, but only needs replacing after 1 year. All vacuums also have a simultaneous wet clean mode, meaning they can sweep up dry dirt and mop wet spills at the same time. A couple other aspects stand out too, besides the long-lasting battery. iClebo Smart and Arte use of camera vision mapping, meaning the vacuums use a camera to scan the ceilings of the house and use this imaging technology to memorize specific obstacles and room elements. The iClebo Smart also has WiFi abilities, allowing the home user to start and stop an iClebo Smart vacuum cycle from their phone or WiFi connected device.

A new competitor

The iClebo robotic home vacuums bring innovations from South Korea to American homes. Though the vacuums have a heftier price tag, consumers get what they pay for with the built in technologies. The iClebo Arte and Pop are currently available for consumer purchase, and the Smart has a release date of June 2014. Be on the lookout for iClebo products in the States and be sure to write a review on Viewpoints if you purchase one.
