Botslab M20 robot mop with quad-mopping pads and self-cleaning dock is crowdfunding
The Botslab M20 robot mop is currently crowdfunding on Indiegogo. The company claims that it is the first robot mop with quad-mopping pads. The rolling mop pads can rotate at 200 rpm, providing up to 10 N of pressure for a deep clean, and a smart carpet detection feature ensures the device does not dispense water on the wrong surfaces.
The gadget uses built-in LiDAR, a SLAM algorithm and an ultrasonic sensor to navigate around your home, avoiding obstacles. The M20 has a 3,200 mAh battery providing up to 180 minutes of cleaning time on a single charge. The robot comes with an auto-self-cleaning and air-drying docking station; the dock has 4 L (~135 fl. oz) clean water and 3.5 L (~118 fl. oz) dirty water tanks, allowing the robot to mop an area up to 2,150 ft² (~200 m²). Plus, the gadget can work quietly, producing as little as 35 dB of noise.
You can control the device using an app or Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant voice commands. The robot is slim, measuring 7.9 cm (~3.1-in) high and can climb obstacles 2 cm (~0.8-in) tall. You can currently receive the Botslab M20 robot mop when you pledge US$399 to the Indiegogo campaign; the product’s MSRP is listed as US$629. The company is shipping to many countries, with the gadget expected to be dispatched in January.
