AGAiT has showcased a new smart vacuum cleaner this fall at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair, showing off some new technology and features in their upcoming models.
The part that jumped out at me was this:
“AGAiT Technology, a wholly own subsidiary of Taiwan-based IT vendor Asustek Computer, is exhibiting a smart robotic vacuum cleaner equipped with a camera module of which recorded photos and video can be linked to Asustek-developed cloud computing storage system”
You can read more about this here.
So just like many other devices in your home, now your vacuum cleaner is also connected to the web and to the cloud, and equipped with cameras. This could be a good thing or bad thing depending on your views on digital privacy.
Here are a couple videos of AGAiT robotic vacuums in action.
Robotic Vacuum cleaners have always been considered by most to be a novelty, but these types of machines are getting to the point where the technology has been fleshed out quite well and they have become useful for many people.
