The iRobot Roomba i7+ Empties Itself

One thing that people hate about robot vacuum cleaners is that you still need to empty their filthy collection containers manually. Well, the new Roomba i7+ from iRobot solves this problem. Finally. The i7+ has an oversized dock that transfers dust and debris into a larger container with disposable waste bags.

Robot vacuums have to be small enough to squeeze into tight spaces and clean under furniture, but this means that their onboard dust bins can’t be very large. So a docking base that automatically sucks the robot’s tiny bin clean makes a lot of sense. The robot can dock about 30 times before the bag needs to be changed.

This fancy $950 model can also store the layouts of up to ten different floors, which are accessible through an app, and you can have it clean only the rooms you want. The i7+ also has improved sensors, mapping, battery life, and even suction power. Sure that price is expensive for a robot vacuum, but this one has some great new features that will make life even easier.
