Launched: Xiaomi’s Mi Robot Vacuum goes official for $250


Xiaomi have unveiled their newest Mi Ecosystem product – the Mi Robot Vacuum. The vacuum cleaner robot will be available in China next week for 1699 yuan or $250.

The Mi Robot Vacuum comes with a bunch of sensors including what Xiaomi call the ‘Laser Distance Sensor (LDS)’, which is an in-house technology that allows the bot to scan its surroundings 360-degrees, up to 1800 times/sec.

The Mi Robot Vacuum integrates with the Mi Home app, so users can control the bot with their smartphones or tablets. A 5200mAh battery gives the bot up to 2.5 hours of cleaning on a single charge, which isn’t very shabby.

Another interesting feature of the bot is the ‘smart return’, which bring the bot back to the charging dock when low on power. We’ve seen similar features on some cheaper cleaners, though (such as this).

As you would expect, the Mi Robot Vacuum will only sell in China (at least for now). It’ll be available via mi.com and Mi Home stores in the country starting 6th September.

    So I can rearrange furnitures 155.520.000 times a day before this beast lose track of its surrounding. Amazing…

    If it actually works this is dirt cheap for one of these. Our Roomba cost over $600 (wedding gift).

    Global products which don’t understand Indian homes and environment conditions will struggle to cater to the needs of an Indian household. They will have to learn a lot from Milagrow and its innovations like water tank, wet and dry mop, fire retardant, anti hair winding brush, turbo suction power, large dustbins, large brush etc. You can see the Video of Milagrow Aguabot 5.0 @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCHwJ4Crs60

    Mi Home app – will it be translated to English or only in Chineese (like most of the Xiaomi products)?

    UPDATE : Ok, it’s in english… but looking at the ratings in the Play Store – seems like the usual “quality” of the chinese software…

    UPDATE : Ok, photos show English language, comments in Play Store a begging for an English translation….
    The ratings in the Play Store are also not that good – seems like the usual “quality” of the chinese software…

    Confused…
