If you own a robot vacuum cleaner you will agree the most frustrating part is emptying it. It also really limits the cleaning time as if the robot is full you need to empty it before it can carry on.

However now the geniuses at iRobot® have invited something to solve this headache. The invention is a special charging dock that connects to the Roomba® i7+ and incorporates its own dustbin!

We know what you are thinking, how often do you need to empty the charging stations bin? The answer is not that often, it can contain 30 full robot bins full. Meaning you can leave it vacuuming for weeks without thinking about it. Just when we thought Robot Vacuum cleaners could not get any smarter they just did!

“iRobot is addressing a long-standing customer call by giving Roomba the ability to empty its own bin after each cleaning,”

said Christian Cerda, COO of iRobot.

“This enhances the customer experience by eliminating the dusty and dirty mess often associated with emptying vacuum canisters. With the ability to remember the home, clean specific rooms and empty itself when its finished, the Roomba i7+ with Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal quite literally frees customers from every aspect of vacuuming – from start to finish – for weeks at a time.”

The Roomba i7+ is also packed with smart features, it learns the layout of a room with its new and unique Smart Mapping tech. This then integrates into Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa allowing you to clean a room just by asking your assistant:

“Alexa, ask Roomba to clean my kitchen,” or “Hey Google, clean the living room. 

The Roomba i7+ robot vacuum with Clean Base™ Automatic Dirt Disposal is available for pre-sale in the US now. We have asked about UK shipping and will update when we find out.

Prices start at $949 USD / £725~ at time of writing.
