20 years ago we would consider Robot Vacuum Cleaners a “thing of the future” – something that only exists in movies. But thanks to the rapid evolution of technology in the last two decades the future is already here. Having your living room cleaned up while you are sitting in a cinema to enjoy a film is not pure fiction anymore. But don’t worry, these handy devices were not created by Skynet itself but rather by a couple of different robotics companies – an area that is growing significantly due to the advancements in the development of capable hardware as well as the general readiness of the Internet generation for “smart” tech gadgets. Most people don’t know that the first automatic vacuum cleaner called Trilobite was already presented in 1997 by the Swedish company Electrolux. And even Dyson, the market leader for vacuums, released their own robot in 2001.
