Today robots have evolved: they can wash the floor and empty their tank independently. Here are the best models to buy to free yourself from the hassle of cleaning.
The robot vacuum cleaner is one of the most underestimated of the technological landscape gadgets. Present on the market for 20 years now, they are halfway between an eternal unfinished and a precious ally to save time and effort in household chores. At first they looked like a crash destined to spread to everyone’s homes within a few years; then, thanks to a really too high cost, little innovation and the doubts of the most skeptical about operation, it was understood that the new vacuum cleaners would remain a niche for enthusiasts. Now, however, the sector seems to have learned from its mistakes and has made great strides over the last few years by offering cutting-edge products at lower prices than in the past. By focusing above all on the versatility and ability of the new robots to clean themselves automatically.

Samsung JetBot 90 AI +
The new JetBot 90 AI + is the world’s first smart robot vacuum cleaner .

Using this information, it maps the safest route, keeping away from fragile or delicate objects, and can even stoop to clean under furniture. While cleaning, JetBot 90 AI + ‘s advanced digital inverter maximizes 30W suction powerof its Jet Cyclone system, capturing both airborne dust and dirt on the floor.
