The robot cleaner that you can boss around: Samsung unveils its voice-controlled 'Powerbot' vacuum

By HARRY PETTIT

The first motorised vacuum cleaner was crafted by an English engineer in 1901, and the humble invention has come a long way since then.

Robot vacuums can now automatically clean rooms and corridors around the home at just the touch of a button, making hungover New Year's Day cleaning a breeze.

This week, Samsung announced the latest of its 'Powerbot' robot vacuums, named the VR7000.

The Korean tech firm says that its newest cleaner is compatible with Amazon's new Echo voice assistant, allowing users to control the robot with voice commands.

But the futuristic vacuum is not the first robot cleaner to offer this function - the Neato Botvac Connect cleaner, released earlier this year, can connect with Echo too.

The Powerbot is less than 10cm (4in) tall, which allows it to skirt into hard-to-reach areas under beds and other furniture.

As with many models of cleaner bots Samsung's VR7000 is controllable remotely via an app.

From their mobile device, users can start and stop the cleaner, schedule the next cleaning time, and even check the bot's cleaning history.

It also has 20W of suction power, which is till significantly less than the average cord vacuum.

Samsung hasn't yet announced an official release date or pricing for its VR7000 bot.

But the older VR9300 model still sells for around £800 ($985) on the company's website.

'The Powerbot VR7000 keeps up with the floor care needs of today's busy families,' said Byung-Sam Seo, President of Home Appliances at Samsung Electronics.

Just set it and watch it go to work.'

The vacuum's on-board AI allows it to map and remember contours of the room to reach every corner.

It can also detect and work its way around smaller obstacles.

Samsung says that the robot's AI power control allows it to adjust the suction power automatically depending on what surface it is on.

And the VR7000 can come within 15mm (0.5in) of walls around the home, an area the tech firm's previous robot vacuums have struggled with due to their bulky size.

Samsung says that the bot boasts a self-cleaning brush to stop hair and dust from getting trapped in the bristles.

The brush collects dust in the centre to prevent too much build up.

The new bot is set for release at next week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
