BOT Turbo+ weds AR and security cameras.

LG’s latest smart vacuum cleaner uses three camera sensors so that it can track the world around it, including the ceiling, to understand exactly where it is, where it has been and where it needs to go.Instead of relying solely on lasers or built-in cameras to figure out where to clean, the mechanically-named HOM-BOT Turbo+ links up with a companion smartphone app for instructions.The robotic vacuum market is currently being dominated by Roomba, with Dyson making moves as well, but that doesn’t mean other manufacturers aren’t looking to compete with their own advanced floor cleaners. Well, the company has announced quite recently that they’re going to release an upgraded lineup of their CordZero products during CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas which will kick off in early January, read on.

LG is one such company, having just announced their HOM-BOT Turbo+, a flat, automated vacuum with a rounded-corner square shape and a handful of unique features, including augmented reality (AR) and home monitoring capabilities. “Home-Joy” is the big feature of the HOM-BOT Turbo+, offering smartphone connectivity beyond what’s been seen before from other manufacturers. Rounding out LG’s cordless vacuum lineup is the versatile CordZero Handstick with long-lasting Dual PowerPack battery and the CordZero Bedding Cleaner with the Dual Punch™ feature.

Owners can open the vacuum’s app and use the camera to take a picture of the floor area they want cleaned, tapping on specific spots that need extra attention. The front camera also doubles as a security feature, so users can view a live feed from the vacuum on their phone, or receive photos when the vacuum detects movement. LG hasn’t said what kind of battery life to expect from its robot vacuum, which platforms the companion app will support, how much the HOM-BOT will cost, or when it’ll be available (though the last-gen model sells for about $500 currently). The handle is supposedly designed after flight control sticks found on aircrafts which, in turn, are designed for maximum maneuverability without straining the wrists. “The powerful new technologies found on the latest LG CordZero products represent our commitment to innovation and providing customers with a better life through better products”, said Jo Seong-jin, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company.
