Home cleaning robot with dual-spin mops

Everybot RS500 floor-cleaning robot has been selling across the world on Amazon, Home Depot and other stores since last year. The company has now raised funds on Kickstarter for an upgraded version RS700 scheduled to be delivered by year-end.

Everybot is essentially a compact robot with two spin mops. The mops can do both dry and wet cleaning, and can clear everything from coffee spills to pet hair within minutes. These can clean any hard surface, be it a tiled floor or a glass. Equipped with sensors, Everybot can find its way autonomously and clean the entire house without your intervention. It has built-in multi-directional and multi-axis sensors to detect and avoid obstacles like furniture, objects on the floor, staircases and drains. Given its compact size, the robot can even clean under chairs and tables.

You just need to fill water in the tanks, switch on the robot, set a mode and relax. Apart from the auto clean mode, the robot can also operate in Y-curve, focus clean, corner clean, manual clean and turbo clean modes.

Everybot RS700 has two powerful 5700rpm motors to capture fine dust without causing dust streaks on the floor. An illuminance sensor on the top of the unit enables it to move to a brighter area after it completes cleaning in dark corners, under the couch, etc. This makes it easier for the owner to spot the robot after its job is done.

Moistened mops can clean floors for 50 minutes at a time. After this, users can charge the mops and add water to the tanks to continue cleaning.

A portable, Internet-enabled 3D printer

Aimed at personal 3D printing segment, Migo is a small and portable, Internet-enabled printer with a range of professional features. Despite being made of industrial standard parts, the printer measures just 155x195x270mm3 and weighs 2.5kg. This has been achieved through a minimalist design.

Despite the printer’s small and portable form, it matches the capability of bigger printers. It has a printing platform of 100x120x100mm3, a nozzle diameter of 0.4mm and a layer resolution of 0.05mm, which ensure high precision, smooth printing at speeds between 100mm/s to 200mm/s. It is very easy to use with a simple, single button operation.

Migo also overcomes another problem commonly associated with 3D printers, namely cable clutter, by using Type-C connectivity. The functions of the signal cable, extruder head’s power cord and other components are consolidated using a single Type-C connector. This enables true plug-and-play printing.

What’s more, the printer supports batch printing, so it can become your little factory! You can set it up to print between 1 and 50 units continuously. The option to replace the print head with a 500mW laser head lets you engrave on soft surfaces like wood, leather, chocolates and plastic.

Migo is equipped with Ethernet, Wi-Fi and an ARM processor. It comes with easy to use software for designing and printing. You can remotely upload files to be printed, check printing progress, and start, cancel or pause printing using the app.

MakeX plans to ship the initial version by July 2018. In future versions, they plan to include features like dual printing heads, touch screens and CNC heads.

An intelligent camera that knows what to capture

Google Clips is a small, light-weight artificial intelligence (AI) powered camera that spontaneously captures interesting moments. Google recommends the product mainly for use with kids, pets, close family and friends.

From wherever it is placed or fastened, the camera keeps watching, using its machine learning capabilities to recognise people who matter and to identify the right moments to shoot ‘clips’ or short, soundless motion photos that last several seconds. You can also help the camera learn who is important to you. The best part is that you can be a part of those pictures too! Clips has a 12-megapixel sensor and a 130-degree field-of-view lens. It takes photos at a speed of 15 frames-per-second. It has a decent battery life, lasting for three hours of continuous use. A shutter button in the camera and app allow you to also use the camera like a regular one.

Clips has 16GB internal memory. All the machine learning happens on the device itself, and nothing leaves your device unless you choose to save or share it. And when you do, the clips are wirelessly synced (using Wi-Fi) to the Google Clips app for Android or iOS. Here, you can save or delete entire clips or save selected frames as high-resolution still photos. You can export the recordings as video, photos or GIFs. If you are using Google Photos to store and organise your clips, you can backup unlimited clips for free!

The first edition of Google Clips, which will soon be available in the USA for US$ 249, will work with Google Pixel, Samsung S7/8 and iPhone (6 and above).
