Vacuum Robot Love Story Commercial
The german company Vorwerk issued a cute ad video (see below) featuring their new vacuum cleaner robot Kobold VR200. The story is inspired from the Disney-Pixar’s great movie Wall-E: a toy robot falls in love with the new shiny robotic vacuum.
When looking at Kobolds, one quickly has a déjà-vu feeling. The Kobold VR100 that is currently on sale has the exact same shape as the Neato Signature series. The behavior is also the same. It relies on a laser for systematic cleaning. It seems that Vorwerk has some agreement with Neato Robotics. The announcement of Kobold VR200 comes only few months after the launch of the Neato Botvac series. It has the same shape and the wide dirt bin as the Botvac series. The finishing is however quite different, with more classy colors and materials.
