Toshiba Smarbo Robotic Vacuum

Toshiba has joined in the robot vacuum arena with the Smarbo. The VC-BR100 has 38 gyro and infrared sensors, a camera and accelerometers to map out where it has been so it doesn't clean the same space. Cleaning is accomplished in parallel lines and it can handle 1076 sq. ft. in a 90 minute cycle. When finished or stopped, it returns to its starting point. All that technology will cost you. Sales will start in Japan in October with a price of $1,175.
