iRobot has unveiled the company's latest innovation, the iRobot Scooba(TM) Robotic Floor Washer, a next-generation robot designed to vacuum, scrub, and dry hard floors automatically. The new robot builds on technology advances from the company's iRobot Roomba(R) Robotic Floorvac.

In addition, iRobot also announced a partnership with The Clorox Company through which the two firms have developed a specially engineered cleaning solution for Scooba. Clorox and iRobot began the collaboration about a year ago to create a cleaning solution that they claim delivers a new level of cleanliness to floors.

Unlike a conventional mop and bucket, the robot only uses fresh water and cleaning solution from a clean tank, so the company says the floor washer never spreads dirty water on the floor.

"iRobot Scooba underscores our commitment to building robots that perform everyday tasks more effectively," said iRobot CEO Colin Angle. "Scooba will liberate people from mops and buckets, and introduce a revolutionary way to clean floors."

A limited number of Scooba Robotic Floor Washers will be available in time for the 2005 holiday season, with larger distribution planned for the first quarter of 2006. The Clorox® cleaning solution will be marketed jointly by Clorox and iRobot.
