First robot vacuum cleaner to work on stairs


Remember the Electrolux Trilobite from last year? You know the robot vaccum cleaner that sold for a rather hefty £1000.

Well the company has just unveiled a second version. Like its predecessor the Trilobite 2.0 is packed with sensors to help it intelligently work its way round a room. It can also find its way back to its stand when it runs out of juice for a recharge. The key differences are that the new model includes sensors that will let it clean stairs (killing all our gags about it being like a Dalek) and it can now be programmed to clean at certain times.

Also Electrolux has ditched the original’s slightly garish red finish and replaced it with a more tasteful metallic green.

No news yet on price and availability.
