LG HOM-BOT Turbo+ Robot Vacuum

LG's HOM-BOT Turbo+ robot vacuum, which can clean for 40 minutes, employs augmented reality (AR) technology with a smart feature called Home-Joy. This new user interface allows consumers to issue instructions to the vacuum cleaner by using the camera of any smartphone. Simply tap on the part of the room in the image to clean and HOM-BOT Turbo+ goes to that location and begins cleaning.

HOM-BOT Turbo+ features Triple Eye camera sensors that track where it has already cleaned. The camera located on the front of the unit enables another smart feature called Home-Guard. This gives consumers extra security and peace of mind by sending photos of inside the home to a paired smartphone when the HOM-BOT Turbo+ senses movement.
