bruum / Smart broom


Bruum is a new, smart sweeping solution that stays true to the essence of a traditional broom—quick, quiet cleaning. The device’s center of mass is placed low down to prevent excessive wrist strain and communicates stability to its user. Its ultra-wide, 17in bruumhead is wider than most vacuums, allowing it to capture more dirt with fewer passes. Bruum’s turbine utilizes a wide, aggressive cross-flow fan design that generates powerful suction evenly across the full width of bruum. Powerstiq, bruum's modular power source, smartly controls the device, displays system information, and provides hours of power.
