iRobot's Tiny Braava Jet Mops Floors So You Don't Have To

...

There's a new member of the iRobot family: the Braava jet kitchen and bathroom maid. Smaller and cheaper than its vacuum and broom siblings, the mopping robot cleans up to 200 square feet of hardwood, tile, or stone floors in wet, damp, or dry mode.

Spitting out suds and scrubbing away dirt and stains, the Braava jet works in three modes: wet mopping, damp sweeping, and dry sweeping. Just attach the appropriate pad, press a button, and the compact robot automatically adjusts its cleaning habits.

"Braava jet complements our successful Roomba robotic vacuum by offering customers a separate option for daily hard-floor mopping on particularly dirty and sometimes unsavory surfaces," Christian Cerda, general manager of iRobot's Home Robots business unit, said in a statement.

The miniature machine swoops into hard-to-reach places, like around toilets and below cabinets using iRobot's iAdapt 2.0 navigation technology. Once the Braava jet completes its room circuit, the 2.7-pound device will return to its starting point to dock and recharge.

The device is on sale now in the U.S. and Canada for $199.99 via irobot.com and hits stores on April 1. It comes with a lithium ion battery and charger, two wet mopping pads, two damp sweeping pads, and two dry sweeping pads. The device includes an "eject" button, which will release the pads into a trash can without you having to touch them.

Additional pads come in packs of 10, and can be purchased online or at iRobot's retail partners for $7.99; a box of two washable pads costs $20.
