By now, it should be crystal clear to the world that there's nothing Sanrio's feline export can't or won't do. So no surprises that the cat is now mopping up the competition with a Hello Kitty version of the hands-free, cutesy floor cleaner called the RoboMop. At a glance, the strange-looking contraption doesn't quite look up to the challenge of heavy-duty grime-busting. But hey, at a mere $99, let's be clear that this shouldn't be categorized in the same league as the artificially intelligent Scooba.
To use, just set the timer on the robotic ball to 30, 60, or 90 minutes. Set this ball within the frame, add a dust sheet, and let it rip. According to the literature, the RoboMop can clean a 12-mat-size Japanese room in 30 minutes, even hitting tough areas like below the bed. Once done, just toss the dust sheet into the bin. Oddly, this Hello Kitty RoboMop comes only in fire engine red, and not in pink. Watch it in action below.
