i-Tribot / vacuum system


The i-tribot’s main ability is that it can clean the areas that are difficult for humans to reach. Areas like that are difficult to clean can collect lots of dust if people don’t clean for about a week. This dust can damage out immune system, and even more, threaten out health. In order to resolve these problems, the i-tribot is introduced to the public. It is the ultimate multi-task cleaning robot that can climb the wall and clean corners humans can’t reach by using its innovative vacuum and steam system. The i-tribot’s three legs are made of fiber textile, which plays a crucial role when it’s climbing the wall.
