It’s Hip to Be Square

This clev­erly shaped ap­pli­ance gets into tight cor­ners to en­sure a thor­ough clean.

The cor­ners in your home are square, so doesn’t it make sense to use an ap­pro­pri­ately shaped ap­pli­ance when clean­ing th­ese tight spa­ces? The Hom- Bot Square from LG meets that re­quire­ment. With its squar­ish de­sign, this smart vac­uum cleaner tack­les cor­ners 89 per cent more ef­fi­ciently than con­ven­tional round mod­els.

The se­cret to its ef­fec­tive­ness is its Cor­ner De­tect­ing sys­tem. Be­sides hav­ing the right shape for cor­ners, the ap­pli­ance also boasts long brushes ( 1.5cm longer than in an ear­lier ver­sion) that get to ar­eas other clean­ers ig­nore. Its cor­ner- de­tect­ing sen­sors tell the de­vice when it has reached the edge of a room, when to turn and when to stop. Sen­si­tive Dual Eye 2.0 TM cam­era sen­sors scan the floor and ceil­ing, sam­pling mul­ti­ple im­ages ev­ery sec­ond and analysing them to gen­er­ate an ac­cu­rate map of the space – even in dim en­vi­ron­ments.

If there are ob­sta­cles in its path, its ul­tra­sonic and in­frared sen­sors al­low it to de­tect and avoid them. Car­peted floors are no prob­lem ei­ther – upon sens­ing a dif­fer­ent sur­face, the Smart Turbo mode au­to­mat­i­cally con­verts its clean­ing mode to Turbo. Then af­ter clean­ing, it turns off the Turbo mode.

The de­vice is also con­ve­nient to use as it has a low noise level and a large dust bin eas­ily re­moved from the top. Its big­ger HEPA 11 fil­ter traps harm­ful dust par­ti­cles, and helps the gad­get to re­lease the cleaned air back into your home.

The Hom- Bot Square ($ 1,299) is avail­able at all ma­jor elec­tri­cal stores.
