2017 is the year where the future starts. You’ll be wandering in your automated home or office where lights and heating system are fully handled by a gateway taking into account sensors values, and equipped with a CO2 level controlled ventilation systems, your eyes constantly looking at your phone, wearing neckband speakers likely connected to your Amazon Echo to let you know when it’s time to get up, eat, go to work, brush your teeth, and get back to bed again. All your life will be taken care of on your behalf by the Internet of Things, relieving you of the stress of taking routine daily decisions… Luckily, you’ll still be have an illusion of control thanks to your “IoT-ready” Samsung POWERbot VR7000 vacuum cleaner that can be controlled with your voice via that Echo thing, giving your life a purpose.

Samsung Electronics’ latest POWERbot vacuum cleaner will be unveiled at CES 2017 in January with a slimmer design (97mm), and more powerful cleaning capabilities. POWERbot VR7000 vacuum cleaner will feature “Visionary Mapping Plus” and “FullView Sensor 2.0” in order to detect obstacles and generate a map of the room, its Intelligent Power Control feature will also automatically adjusts the level of suction power to surface type (hardwood, carpet, etc…). I think it’s also the first “IoT-ready” vacuum cleaner I’ve seen, and you can control it using a mobile app, or through voice commands thanks to its compatibility with Amazon Echo. TizenExperts also reports that the device will run Tizen, and can also be integrated with the SmartThings hub. I guess you could also have some sort of dust sensor(s) to decide when to start the vacuum cleaner, beside scheduling cleaning times.
