Let a robot mow your lawn while you take care of other yard work. The MowRo is a battery-operated, simple-to-use robot lawnmower that removes the need for spending any money on fuel, oil or cords. A 28-volt lithium-ion battery powers the motor, and the mower automatically returns to the charging station when the battery runs low. A super-quiet motor means you can mow while you sleep, and it runs on a 48-hour schedule to keep up with daily growth for a healthier, greener lawn.
Though it won’t replace a mop and bucket, this little ’bot can damp-mop your place to keep pet hair, dander and minor splatters under control. You can even load it with a reusable microfiber cloth, and the machine is quiet enough that you can run it while you sleep.
This high-end competitor to the Roomba is made to reach corners more easily via a set of lengthy brushes. Two cameras help it "see" and plot its path, and you can use a remote to teach it to maneuver tricky areas in your home, so every time it encounters them afterward, it knows where to go. Plus, you can start, stop and redirect the cleaning from anywhere using your smartphone.
Traditional dustpans can be back-breakers, plus there’s the fun of bending close to allergen-filled dust with each sweep. The VacPan mounts flush with your wall and works with your central vacuum to suck up dust and dirt — just sweep toward it, and it will pull the dust away.
If you're more of a dog person, there's a self-cleaning potty pad for your pup, too. The BrilliantPad self-cleaning pad makes house training your pup way easier. Plus, it's great for pet owners who have no yard. BrilliantPad works by wrapping and sealing dry and liquid waste to keep your home clean and odor-free. Just set the adjustable timer to replace a dirty pad with a clean, fresh one automatically, or swap out that dirty pad any time at the touch of a button — all without touching the pad.
If you love the idea of less food waste but don't want to deal with the hassle of composting, you need the FoodCycler. The FoodCycler is a compact food recycler that reduces food waste and eliminates food scrap odors, making it ideal for indoor use. The carbon filter lid reduces odors, so you can store your scraps until the bucket is full without worrying about offensive smells. Run it to create a soil additive in no time.
