Commodore CVR200: Former home computing giant releases a new product in a bizarre transformation

Commodore has presented the CVR200, a model name that sounds like it should be a PC. Unfortunately, the reality is different and is just someone piggybacking on the Commodore brand name.

The Commodore brand has been defunct for nearly 30 years, with Commodore International ceasing trading in early 1994. Since then, Commodore has been repurposed for a few ventures, including a Commodore-themed smartphone. Now, someone has released the Commodore CVR200, taking the brand in an unexpected direction.

For some reason, the company behind the device decided outlets with the above image, a pixelated shot of what are, quite clearly, robot vacuums. For some reason, someone thought Commodore would be a suitable brand under which to market conventional robot vacuums.

On the face of it, there is nothing that sets the Commodore CVR200 apart from other robot vacuums. According to the manufacturer, the CVR200 supports up to 2,600 Pa of suction power, five cleaning modes and 5 GHz Wi-Fi. Additionally, the vacuum can map out rooms across several floors and contains anti-fall sensors to prevent it from coming a cropper with stairs.

Currently, the Commodore CVR200 is available to purchase on Amazon Germany for €389. It is unclear if the company behind it plans to sell the robot vacuum though, such as in the rest of the EU, the UK or the US.
