Fukitorimushi is the latest in floor-cleaning robots, unlike many that you may find up for sale these days, this autonomous robot does its thing in a rather creepy way by crawling around like a worm despite it using a highly efficient tech savvy cloth to keep your floors spotless.


Technically, the Fukitorimushi sports sensors that allows it to detect dirty spots on the floor. Fukitorimushi’s body is covered in Teijin’s Nanofront cloth, which is made of polyester filament fibers measuring 700 nanometers in diameter. Though this sounds remarkably hard to believe, this means it is about 7,500 times thinner than the average human hair. The nanofibers significantly increase the fabric’s surface area, giving it superior wiping characteristics and the ability to absorb oil and ultra-fine dust particles less than one micron in diameter.

Check out these pretty amazing high tech luxurious hoovers. Not only do the Miele S7 vacuum cleaners look like it came from outer space thanks to the front LEDs, sensors, and LCD screen, but also because of its smart design, which allows it to twist in every direction to the point of laying flat and transform with all kinds of built-in contraptions.

The Miele S7 has LED lights to illuminate every place it reaches while you suck pizza crumbles, Lego pieces, and dead spiders thanks to a 1,800-watt engine, built-in sensors that adjust speed and height depending on the surface and a six-litre vacuum bag. The S7 has a twisting head design that allows it to turn into every direction possible, including laying down on the floor, completely flat.

Unlike other vacuum cleaners, this one comes with all the different accessories to clean special surfaces built in its own body. Therefore, there’s no need to go to the closet to get them.

The range includes five different models that vary in price and function from the lemon yellow S7210 at £249 to the LED-controlled S7580 pictured here at £370.
