iRobot Debuts Itsy Bitsy Scooba 230 Floor Washing Robot
Well we knew that it was time for iRobot to dazzle us again with some new robotic friends, and at CES this week they will indeed be debuting the Scooba 230 Floor Washing Robot. This itsy bitsy floor washing robot is the smallest in the world at 3.5 inches tall and 6.5 inches in diameter. That is about half the diameter of the iRobot Scooba 330, 350 and 380. The iRobot Scooba 230 will scrub your tile, linoleum and hardwood floors.
The Scooba 230 uses a three-stage cleaning system. That means that it washes, scrubs and squeegees your floors. The scrubbing brushes loosen and clean dirt and stains. Meanwhile, the built-in squeegee and vacuum, pick up all the water on the floor so your floors can dry fast. The Scooba 230 also features a standard cleaning cycle or a shorter 20-minute cycle for cleaning smaller rooms. To top it all off, the Scooba 230 can also fit in just about anywhere and and go under just about any piece of furniture due to its diminutive size, and when done it can sit right next to the toilet bowl brush in your bathroom. The Scooba 230 will launch in the Spring, just in time for Spring cleaning, or perhaps Mother’s Day.
