It seems as if no matter how hard I try, there’s always dust on every smooth surface in my house. Perhaps it’s all the dander that my two dogs kick up, or maybe the same thing happens to everyone, pets or no pets.
We’ve seen machines designed to clean bathrooms before, but this one is an actual tiny robot that you lift up and put in your toilet. Altan Robotech’s invention, named “Giddel” has a humanoid shaped head so that you can feel extra weird about putting a small being into a toilet bowl.
Just get this guy out of his charging base and put him in your dirty toilet bowl.
Walmart is always looking for ways to save, and with its $15 an hour minimum wage, it should come as no surprise that some workers are due to be replaced by automation. The first replacements were cashiers, with most Walmart locations now offering self-checkout lanes where you don’t have to listen to the cashier talk when all you want to do is pay and leave.
Now it’s the custodians that are being replaced with a ride-on floor scrubber that no longer needs a person to operate it.
Household chores suck. If you ask me, the worst chore is scrubbing toilets. We all dread it. If only there were a robot that would do the job for us. Well, there is. A team of researchers from the University of Koblenz-Landau have created a robot that specializes in the dirty job.
This toilet-scrubbing bot can detect people, objects, and the toilet seat, and even has a microphone for speech recognition, as well as a mobile base for moving around.
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.
Those too lazy to take their clothes to the dry cleaner will love Panasonic’s new clothes hanger, the Nanoe X. It deodorizes your clothes for you. The deodorizing hanger works by using negatively charged particles, or “nanoe,” to clean your clothes.
Looking like a giant and uncomfortable mouse, this household robot wants to help eliminate the need of performing one of life’s unpleasant tasks: mopping floors. The Everybot RS500 robot will take care of this laborious task for you with the touch of a button.
Canister vacuums are known for constantly tipping over as they roll across your floors, so Dyson has created a canister vacuum that can always right itself like those old Weebles toys.
The spherical design is what makes the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball’s trailing canister able to always get back up onto its two wheels.

Over the last few years, there’s been quite a buzz about the “Internet of Things.”
The Woof Washer 360 is a hula hoop shaped gadget that sprays water so you can wash your dog more easily. Just connect your garden hose and you can get Rover clean super fast.
You can spray soapy water through it, or clean water for rinsing.
Smudged screens are one of my biggest pet peeves. Unfortunately, they’re virtually unavoidable when you have a smartphone because every tap or swipe on the screen will put greasy fingerprints on it.
For that reason, I carry a microfabric cloth with me wherever I go.
So you like to grill when the weather is nice, but you hate cleaning all of that grime off of your grill. It’s tough. The grease and dirt always sticks to the grate and it can be a real pain to scrub off.
Now that you’ve already put your baby to work on buffing your floor until it’s shiny (thanks to the Baby Mop), why not do the same with all your four-legged pets?
After all, they’re on all fours all the time and walk around a lot.
My sister’s baby crawls around so much that the floor looks infinitely cleaner and shinier by the time she’s all crawled out.
Someone else must’ve apparently noticed this with their own babies, because why else would they come up with something as silly and amusing as the Baby Mop romper?
