IRobot, which develops cleaning robots such as "Roomba" and "Brava", will release a new model of floor cleaning robot "Brava Jet 240" on August 26th. It features a more compact body than conventional products and a powerful water wipe with a jet spray.
Braava is a cleaning robot that automatically wipes the room with water. It seems that sales are steadily increasing even in Japan, where the rag culture has taken root.
The Braava Jet to be released this time is newly equipped with a jet spray that sprays water on the floor. After wetting it with water, the cleaning head was vibrated finely and scraped off, making it possible to handle heavily soiled places such as kitchens and bathrooms.
The size is 20 cm or less on a side, which gives the impression that it is considerably more compact than conventional products. The white-based body is "designed to hug you and make you want to take it home," said Christian Serda, COO of the company.
There are three types of dedicated cleaning pads, and when attached to the main body, the optimum cleaning mode is automatically started. The pad can be attached / detached with a single touch, so there is no need to touch the dirty surface when throwing it away. A pad that can be washed up to 50 times is also available as an option.
Like Roomba's flagship model, it is equipped with artificial intelligence "iAdapt 2.0" that accurately maps rooms. It goes into the gaps and narrow spaces of furniture and cleans it all over. Furthermore, if you use the dedicated app "iRobot HOME", you can start cleaning from outside or intensively wipe and clean in "spot mode".
The body size of the blur budget is 178 x 170 x 84 mm, and the weight is about 1.2 kg. The maximum operating area is 12 to 15 tatami mats (depending on the cleaning mode). The selling price at the official online store is 29,880 yen (excluding tax).
