This robot vacuum doubles as a mop because of its water tanks!

Spring cleaning has now become an everyday thing as we all turn into Monica Geller and wipe down surfaces. As there is no vaccine yet and all we can really do is stay home and make sure that we are keeping it clean so that the virus doesn’t stand a chance in our territory. Along with the spike in the sales for sanitizers and masks, all cleaning products have experienced a surge in demand and the 2020 way to do this is to work harder not smarter – say hello to Everybot Edge!

Robotic vacuums are not new news but Everybot Edge is a home appliance that works for both wet and dry cleaning of hard floors. And if you want to feel like you’ve put in some work then simply switch to the handheld mode and get into the crevices. One of the most interesting features is that this vacuum maneuvers without wheels. It runs on two round, rotating microfibre pads, which are driven by two separate motors; so the robot cleans the floor while moving – similar to when I stepped on two kitchen towels and walked around the space-eating snacks while telling my mom I was cleaning. The best part is you don’t need a dry pad and a wet pad (like Swiffers) because the two containers in the vacuum constantly supply the pads with water. Call this robotic vacuum Hannah Montana because it is the best of both worlds.

The protruding shape of Everybot Edge helps it to reach corners of your home and maybe your heart. It also features anti-collision and fall-protection sensors (something I could use for the days I can’t find my glasses!). Just like an actual adult, I am very excited about this mopping robot because it is versatile, flexible and has high functionality for its compact form.

Everybot Edge is a winner of the Red Dot Product Design Award for the year 2019.
