Researchers from the Pohang Institute of Intelligent Robotics (PIRO) have made and unveiled a robot that would help you do one mundane chore… cleaning the windows. Called “Windoro“, the company is planning on making it available for commercial use in the following year. The robot is made up of two modules that sandwich the window to be cleaned, being held together by neodynium magnets. A combination of proximity/distance sensors, altitude adjustment and obstacle detection, enable the Windoro to do its thing, of course with the help of spinning pads and good old detergent to do the dirty work.
