iROBOT RESCUE - most powerful and efficient vacuuming robot


IROBOT Corp. recently introduced its smartest, most powerful and efficient vacuuming robot: the new iRobot Roomba 500 series of Vacuum Cleaning Robots.

Based on feedback from more than two million buyers since Roomba's introduction five years ago, iRobot has reinvented its
flagship home robot to deliver 100% improved vacuum performance for a cleaner home, every day.

With the Roomba 500 series, iRobot raises the IQ of home care further. The new robots can free themselves from almost any
household jam, minimising the need to prep rooms before Roomba begins cleaning. Using wireless technology, the robots now know when they have finished cleaning one room and to move on to the next.

"It took three years and the latest in robot technology innovations to create appliances that can clean as effectively and
autonomously as the new Roomba 500 series.

"Life today is so busy, we rarely have the time or the energy to clean our homes as often as we'd like. If you wish you could have clean floors every day, this one's for you," said Sandra Lawrence, president of iRobat Home Robots.

The iRobot Reomba 500 series includes the following new features:
* A solid, heavy-duty design featuring modular components for enhanced durability and easy servicing;
* Anti-tangle technology so Roomba can extract itself from tassels and cord tangles;
* iRobot's proprietary built-in, light-touch intelligent sensing system that can detect when Roomba is approaching a wall or obstacle and automatically slow the robot down for a gentler impact and quieter operation;
* One-button activation; simply press "clean" and go;
* A built-in voice tutorial for new users that demonstrates Roomba's features right out of the box;
* A new mobility platform that allows Roomba to travel on thicker carpets, climb higher thresholds, and transition easily
between floor surfaces;
* New re-designed dustbin holds significantly more debris;
The iRobot Roomba 530, priced at RM2, 188, includes all of these features and cleans up to three standard rooms before returning to its Home Base to recharge. Roomba 530 also comes with a standard Virtual Wall that confines the robot to a certain area using an infrared beam.

The iRobot Roomba 560, priced at RM2, 389, includes two Virtual Wall Lighthouses. These mini-towers - just 10cm tall (4.25 inches) and about 9cm(3.5 inches) wide -- help orient Roomba via radio frequency (RF) communications and guideRoomba systematically through the home. The Virtual Wall Lighthouses confine the Roomba to one room until that room is thoroughly cleaned, and then guide Roomba into the next room.

Once the Roomba 560 finishes its cleaning, or if its battery is running low, the Virtual Wall Lighthouses direct the robot to its Home Base to dock and recharge.

Roomba 560 also includes an on-board scheduling function, so it can be programmed to automatically clean up to seven days
a week, even when owners are away.

All Roomba 500 series robots include iRobot'S patented threestage cleaning system that auto matically adjusts to clean carpets and hard floors.

Roamba's intelligent cleaning system evaluates its environment at 67 times per second so that it always delivers the right
amount of cleaning power to your floor. The new iRobot Roomba 500 is now available nationwide.
