Samsung Electronics, a global home appliance innovator, today announced new additions to its home appliance laundry and floor care line-up. Designed to elevate the everyday home experience for consumers, the products conveniently and easily tackle household mess. Featuring outstanding performance, smart design and sleek functionality, Samsung will display its latest innovations – including the brand’s evolutionary robot vacuum – at the 2015 International CES from Jan. 6-9, 2015.
“With today’s multi-tasking families busier than ever, we consistently hear from consumers that they need easy and convenient ways to tackle everyday messes – like picking up household dirt. They are looking for home appliances with clever solutions that help them take care of their home efficiently so they have time to pursue the things they really want to do,” said John Herrington, Senior Vice President, General Manager of Home Appliances, Samsung Electronics America. “Our line-up of innovative and stylish vacuum products deliver on this consumer need. Samsung appliances are the ideal combination of simplicity, performance, technology and innovation.”
A New Era in Robot Vacuums
For years, robot vacuums have promised to transform cleaning but the reality has not lived up to the potential as traditional robot vacuums do not perform as well on carpets as they do on hard floors. That’s about to change with the new Samsung POWERbot VR9000. This powerful robot vacuum features an array of advanced technologies and features to do the heavy lifting for today’s busy households, from hardwood to carpet.
Its cleaning prowess is unprecedented in a robot vacuum. The Digital Inverter Motor features a level of suction up to 60 times more powerful than conventional robot vacuums for removal of dirt and other debris on carpets like no robot before it. Hard wood and laminate surfaces are a breeze for the VR9000 and an extra-wide rectangular brush bar four inches wider than conventional robot vacuums eliminates the need for side brushes while covering more ground in a single pass. CycloneForce technology creates a centrifugal force that routes particles into a separate inner chamber, minimising clogging in order to maintain its powerful suction.
The POWERbot VR9000 also features unique innovation that provides maximum maneuverability. Unlike many other robots, the Height Performance FullView Sensor™ detects even small obstacles across a wide area with minimal blind spots. With high performance chips, sensors and an onboard digital camera, the Visionary Mapping™ Plus System creates a complete map of the home to calculate the most efficient cleaning path, avoiding road blocks like a set of steps or a child’s toy. Easy Pass™ Wheels allow the vacuum to move around the home with ease and control. Point Cleaning Technology allows you to direct the vacuum with a simple click of a remote control.
Once cleaning is complete, or the battery is low, the POWERbot VR9000 will guide itself back to the docking station for recharging.
The Samsung POWERbot VR9000 Airborne Copper colour blends twinkling gold and chic black, and will be available in Spring 2015.
