Myray / Swimming pool-cleaner


The solar powered Myray system autonomously cleans all pool areas and
filters water in variable depths. Dirt particles are absorbed into a capsule,
which, once it is full, is decoupled and consequently floats on the water surface. Via smart phone application Myray informs the customer to empty the floating capsule and put it back into the water afterwards. Myray automatically re-attaches to his decoupled part and continues the cleaning process.
The natural shape as well as the smooth movements of rays served as an inspiration and are reflected in the design of the Myray system.
