LG has just unveiled its new robotic vacuum, the Hom-Bot Turbo+, which has some nifty features.




First off, it's a normal robotic vacuum, so you can schedule your cleaning duties to be done while you're out of the house, or asleep. The Turbo+ has three cameras that, with the assistance of the Robonavi software, allow the robotic vacuum to navigate your house, apartment or wherever you call home, and keep it clean.


LG has used these cameras in a unique way, as you can view the Turbo+ in real-time, and remotely control it through the Home-View function. The Home-View function has the cameras working as a mobile security system, which lets owners of the Turbo+ receive still images to their devices if it detects movement in a home that should be empty.


LG will be showing off the Hom-Bot Turbo+ at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show next month in Las Vegas.
