While it doesn’t go as far as the floor-scrubbing Scooba robot that iRobot also sells, the Braava Jet does offer regularly cleaned hard floors without you having to move a muscle. Using its own autonomous tracking system, it’s able to navigate around your open spaces, spraying the floor with a water and then mopping over it with either a wet, damp or dry cloth soaked in cleaning solution.
Regardless of which setting you pick though, the end result should be a spotlessly clean floor without you having to lift a finger.
As well as being able to navigate itself around, the Braava Jet also has a number of safety features to prevent it falling down stairs and BetaBoston reports that during a demonstration it was able to navigate around a circular tabletop, cleaning it to a high standard without falling to its doom.
This isn’t the first auto-mopper that iRobot has ever put out. It also has a pricier Braava, which not only costs $100 more, but doesn’t have the spray functionality of the Braava Jet. This version is more cost efficient and better at its job — it’s reportedly been in development for two years, so clearly a lot of R&D has gone into its creation.
The Braava Jet is also smaller, which allows it to get into tighter spaces, which would otherwise require you the owner to actually lift a finger — and what’s the point in buying a robot cleaner if you have to do half the job yourself?
