New window cleaning robot unveiled

A new robot designed to clean windows could appeal to businesses with shop windows.

The Windoro from South Korea was revealed at the recent Consumer Electronics Show event in Las Vegas and could transform Window Cleaning Services.

TNW reports that the window cleaning robot uses magnetic technology to operate and is capable of automatically measuring the dimensions of a window so that it ensures it cleans the whole surface without missing any dirty patches.

The Windoro was created by Ilshim Global, a company based in Gyeongsan in South Korea, and was developed with assistance from the Pohang Institute of Intelligent Robotics – an institute created in 2004 with the aim of becoming the world’s leading centre in its field.

It measures just 20cm and weighs 2.7 kg but has been designed to clean windows that range from six to 25mm in thickness. The company is aiming the robotic machine at businesses that have large shop windows or even homeowners that struggle to keep on top of their window cleaning duties.

Windoro will be on sale next month in Korea and then will be available in the US and Europe by April 2011.
