January 9, 2009 Consumer robotics manufacturer iRobot
is demonstrating the second generation Looj Gutter Cleaning Robot at CES, which is newsworthy in that the original model
won last year’s 2008 Best of CES Innovations Award
and it’s still the only product of its kind. The Looj, makes gutter cleaning faster (it can clean up to 60-foot of gutter in10 minutes), easier and safer by reducing ladder work and reaching in precarious positions. The new Looj comes in three models starting at US$130, and has been significantly redesigned with additional features that help it break up clogged leaves and debris and improve overall performance.
November 14, 2007 The Looj
remote controlled gutter cleaning bot from home robotics specialists iRobot
has been announced the winner of the Best of Innovations Design and Engineering Award in the Home Appliance category in the 2008 International Consumer Electronic Showcase (CES).
October 1, 2007 Cleaning the gutters is an unloved yet necessary - even dangerous - household chore that is inevitably given the lowest priority until gutters are clogged and overflowing with leaves. The latest offering from home robotics
uses remote control to solve the problem – the Looj blasts out debris and brushes gutters clean while your feet remain firmly planted on the ground.
