Cleaning Robot Idea for Development

Swedish Electrolux offshored its vacuum cleaner production to Hungary in 2004 and closed the Swedish factory in Vaestervik. Robot cleaner Trilobite 2.0 became the second and last generation from the Swedish  consumer robotics pioneer. Sad for customers but also for creative developers behind a concept idea of a multi-functional robot cleaner. The idea responds perfectly to what cleaning experts claim for a healthy home - not only cleaning of floors but also textile furniture. Take a look at the video below. 

BTW, Electrolux had launched the Ergorapido 2in1 manual stick vacuum in 2004 and the idea of robot cleaner and stick vac was not so new in 2006. But the idea is great and I´m sure multi-functional cleaning robots will come. Who will be first with a green, affordable and effective solution? 

At Yanko Design a very similar All-In-One Robot Cleaner design concept of In-oh Yoo & Sun-woong Oh for Metatrend Institute  was published May 2010.
