We dont review a lot of robotic vacuums but the Evolution Robotics Mint Automatic Hard Floor Cleaner is getting good reviews and it can be found for under $200 at some online retailers (it is also a best-seller on Amazon). As such, it warrants a look. It should be pointed out that this is not a vacuum but rather a robotic sweeper and mopper.
Evolution robotics are no stranger to working with robotic devices. They have developed state-of-the-art facial recognition systems as well as location awareness systems for popular consumer robotics in the past. They also develop robotics solutions for commercial use. The company started in 2002 and has headquarters in the US and regional offices in Germany and Japan. The Evolution Robotics Mint Automatic Hard Floor Cleaner was released in 2010.
According to the Mint website the robot can clean up to 800 square feet in sweep mode but is restricted to 250 square feet in mop mode as the mopping cloth needs to stay wet to be effective. When the Mint cleaner finishes an area it returns to the same spot it started from and turns itself off. The Mint Automatic Hard Floor Cleaner has dimensions (W x L x H) 8.5 x 9.6 x 3.1 and the low profile allows it to get under most furniture easily.
Wow. Just wow. Never mopping my floors again! The Mint Automatic Hard Floor Cleaner dry sweeps AND wet mops. It uses GPS to keep track of where it has been and where it needs to go, so every inch of the floor gets cleaned efficiently.
