A new step in further modernizing its cleaning systems is pursuing iRobot with its emblematic Roomba vacuum cleaner model, since its latest highlight is an extra cleaning cloth that is used to mop simultaneously.
The model Combo j7 + is the solution for those who want an all-in-one. The company’s co-founder and CEO Colin Angle describes it as the “first legitimate 2-in-1 vacuuming and mopping robot ever created.”
The Combo j7+ has a standard vacuum body on top. However, when it’s finished, a pair of recessed arms pulls down a cloth-lined pad on top of the chassis to the floor. From there, it will drag the pad along your hard floors, before pushing it back if it has to cross carpet. All a user has to do is change the bag and refill the water, which could take up to 60 days at a time.
iRobot also showcased the iRobot 5.0 operating system, its latest and greatest operating system. This includes better integration with home and phone assistants like Siri and Alexa, the ability to mark cleaner zones for extra attention, and better hazard prevention. You can also modify mission plans on the fly, banishing your Roomba from a room where you’re about to receive a Zoom call, for example. iRobot also wanted to affirm its commitment to protecting user data, never selling it to third parties, and that it has obtained a TÜV SÜD Cyber Security certification for its data hygiene.
The Roomba Combo j7+ is available for pre-order todayand it will cost $1,099 in the US, with shipments beginning on October 4.
