The Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner from Evolution Robotics received an International CES Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Award in the Portable Home Appliances category. Products entered in this program are judged by a panel of independent industrial designers, engineers, and journalists.

Mint is a robotic floor cleaning appliance designed for use on hard surface floor cleaning. The appliance automatically dusts and wet mops hard surface floors using popular disposable electrostatic cleaning cloths and reusable microfiber cloths. It adapts to different home environments using a range of sensors and employs advanced navigation technologies to deliver a systematic and thorough floor cleaning.

The OEM partnered with industrial designer Yves Behar and his team at fuseproject to focus on usability and create a clear departure from the existing masculine and techno looking products in the market.

“Until now, home cleaning technologies frankly looked like sci-fi toys. Our belief is that by focusing on a simple and fail-safe consumer experience fused with a clean-modern aesthetic, we create a familiar and friendly product and brand,” said Yves Behar of fuseproject
