Toshiba Smarbo Ready to Take on the Roomba

Toshiba Smarbo Ready to Take on the Roomba

The Magic Glove Vacuum and Dusts All At Once

The Magic Glove Vacuum and Dusts All At Once
I remember back in the day when vacuum cleaners were huge, noisy, metallic machines that had to be lugged around or dragged around on stands with wheels. My mother used to have me carry the heavy vacuum while she went around with the hose and the vacuum’s brush head, poking it around here and there and in corners everywhere.

A boy from Cambridge, England has managed to figure out a way to climb a brick wall with not much more than a couple of vacuum cleaners. Using a pair of 1,400-watt vacuums he purchased at UK retailer Tesco, Hibiki Kono hooked them up to a couple of large suction pads, and proceeded to ascend a vertical surface with the contraption strapped to his back and arms.

Mint Floor Cleaner: Square and Simple

Mint Floor Cleaner: Square and Simple
The Mint cleaner is designed to be used with reusable microfiber cloths or, if you want to waste money, Swiffer cleaning cloths. Unlike the Roomba, the Mint can only clean hard floors. I’m not sure if it can dock and recharge itself; the official website mentions no such feature.

Pac-Man Roomba Eats All Your Dirt Pellets
As devices go, the Roomba is pretty cool on its own. It’s a useful machine and a fun toy all in one, so dressing it up can seem a little gratuitous. But if you turn your Roomba into Pac-Man… well, that’s just awesome.

Zero Gravity R/C Cars Will have You Climbing the Walls
Remote controlled race cars are pretty much a dime-a-dozen these days, so I’m always happy to come across one that’s a little left of center. Contrary to its name, the Air Hog Zero Gravity Micro R/C car does not defy gravity.
