We have seen a plethora of cleaning robots that would lend a helping hand to domestic chores. Lately, the consumer electronics is picking up smart features, and the same has been the case with cleaning robots. Products like Roomba have added a new dimension to household chores and also offers intuitive features. Today we are going to talk about an interesting Kickstarter project called Spinx.
Spinx is the new age janitor that is automated to clean the toilets autonomously. In plain words, the Spinx is a robot that can clean the toilets including the toilet bowl and the seat. The best part, however, is that Spinx is placed snug within the toilet seat and doesn’t interfere with the aesthetics. All one needs to do is press a button, and the Spinx will clean the toilet in a matter of 90 seconds.
The users will also be given a choice of program, and the toilet seat is designed to withstand a weight of up to 330 pounds. The Spinx first scans the area of the toilet bowl and then deploys a robotic arm with a rotating brush. The arm descends all the way to the nethers of the toilet and cleans the same. That apart, the Spinx also employs soap and water jets that not only clean the toilet seat but also dry the same.
One can use any toilet cleaners, no matter whether its liquid or tablets. The cleaning agent can be placed in the tank, and the Spinx will use a measured quantity for every wash. The battery pack is rated to last for 30 washes post which it needs to be docked for charging. It is laudable how the entire robot folds itself away and sits on the toilet seat cover as if it was never there in the first place.
The Spinx is interesting, innovative and is sure to find a place for itself in smart. Cleaning toilets is a major chore, apart from the manual labor you should also protect yourself from bacterias and other unpleasant odors. Yet another cool thing is that the Spinx will potentially bring down the water wastage levels in toilets. The makers of Spinx are currently running a Kickstarter campaign and the pledges start from $199.
