In Sunday’s segment on Sky News Australia (Weekend Edition with Tim Gilbert) we looked at the Australian release of the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI robot vacuum cleaner. It’s the smartest robot vacuum cleaner you can buy and it will cost $2 499 AUD.
It takes direct voice commands – extra to Google and Alexa, sweeps, vacuums and mops. After each cleaning round the base station automatically washes the mop and dries it using hot air to remove odours when working in humid environments. Automatically stores the wastewater after cleaning the mop, automatically empties dust bag and refills the water tank with clean water.
The DEEBOT X1’s decision making process is similar to an autonomous driving car and so far in my testing it’s lived up to that precision. Due to the size of the home station JACOB JENSEN DESIGN was commissioned to enhance its appearance. The built-in camera and two-way voice function allow customers to use the ECOVACS HOME App to talk to family members, pets and interact using videos.
You could go months before having to handle the X1.

BMW THEATRE MAKES THE BACKSEAT THE BEST SEAT
BWM’s new 7 Series offers a new level of in-car entertainment. The BMW Theatre is a 31.3-inch 8K screen with Amazon Fire TV built in. It uses 5G connectivity for media streaming, accepts voice commands or touch input using the big screen or 5.5-inch touchscreens built into each arm rest. The theatre screen can electronically slide back and forward for a better viewing angle or reach. A 36-speaker 4D sound system that vibrates your seats will cap off the experience.
