During last week's International Robot Exhibition Japanese robotics firm Figla showed the world an updated version of its cleaning robot. The new prototype robot is taller, a bit more anthropomorphic, and looks a lot less like its iRobot competitor.
The key feature of the new prototype is its ability to offer the user a tool for remote home viewing when away. The robot uses voice prompts and an elaborate sensor system to do its job, but until an official announcement is made we'll have to make do with the prototype's little brother.
