Roborock's S7 mopping and vacuuming robot

Techstination feature for Friday, June 4, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    Robotic vacuums have come a long way since the first Roomba arrived …believe it or not…nearly twenty years ago.    These days..iRobot has some significant competition in the space.   Among those competitors is Roborock…maker of the S7 combination robotic vacuum and mop.   And it handles both chores..automatically and well.   The company’s Dan Cham says there is Lidar built in..along with what it calls Sonic Mopping..

“It actually vibrates up to three thousand times per minute..or if you put it in terms of sound, it’s 50Hz.”

It uses only water and automatically lifts the mopping surface when it travels onto carpet.  Very smart…and an automatic emptying dock is due out later in the year.  The price..about 650 dollars.  Find more at
