The Korea Herald dedicated a front page link on their website to this interesting product. It’s called robomop, and it cleans dust off of hard floors. It’s not a Korean product, it’s designed in Norway and made in China, but that the Korea Herald is pushing it leads me to believe that there is some kind of connection to Korea. Perhaps it is an invention made by a Korean or a Korean-Norwegian that was sold to the Norwegian company.
Speculation aside, the product is extremely simple compared to similar robotic vacuum cleaners I’ve seen. The outer layer is statically charged, and the inner part is nothing more than a ball that rotates via change in weight ratio. It looks like putting two childrens’ toys together, and that’s cool.

What if I have a carpet?
Then you probably shouldn’t buy this product. It’s made specifically for hard floors, which are typical in most Korean houses.
