Gundam’s Haro Comes to Earth… as a Vacuum Cleaner

 |  |  |  |  August 14, 2012

Haro was made more than a few appearances on Gundam’s anime episodes and video games, but now it has landed on earth – as a vacuum cleaner. So that’s probably not the most extravagant of appliances that it can be manifested in, but it’s better than nothing, right? Plus, vacuums are actually pretty useful, anyway.


The Haro robot vacuum is actually the product of a collaboration between Sharp and Gundam Front Tokyo. The vacuums will be based on the Sharp Cocorobo and will be available in two refreshing colors: green and pink – though it wasn’t practical to make a spherical-shaped vacuum, since that wouldn’t fit under your furniture.

These snazzy-looking robotic vacuums are equipped with Cocoro Engine artificial intelligence and come with speech recognition features. Just say the word, and the Haro robotic vacuum will do your bidding.

It’s also fitted with a camera and LED lights, and comes with remote-controlled maneuverability that allows you to control it using your smartphone.

The Haro robot vacuum will be on display at the Gundam Front Tokyo in Odaiba Tokyo, so if you’re in the area, drop by and check it out.
