If you live above ground level, chances are your windows are in desperate need to exterior cleaning. And because you probably aren't going to climb outside Mission Impossible style to do it yourself, why not let a robot do the dirty work for you? Ecovacs' new Winbot 7 is an easy to use, quiet robotic window cleaner that is similar in size to current small household robotic floor cleaners such as the Rombaa and Mint. Much like existing floor cleaning robots, the Winbot 7 uses sensors to automatically draw an efficient cleaning pattern in which it will return back to its initial starting point when finished. Active dual suction rings enable it to securely suck itself onto any framed or frame-less glass window inside or out, while numerous reusable microfiber pads carry out a three-stage cleaning arrangement which will supposedly result in a streak-free and spotless glass surface.
Apart from pushing the unit's "start cleaning my filthy window button", you'll need to spray the cleaning pad with a cleaning solution ahead of time. Ecovac took safety into account and made sure to equip a tethered safety harness when using the Winbot 7 to clean windows above ground level. Ecovacs' Winbot 7 will join the company's existing floor cleaning robots next year in yellow and white colors for an unspecified retail price.
