LG’s Answer to Roomba

Korean electronics giant LG has announced their own Roomba-like robot domestic, called the RoboKing in Korea, the LG V-R4000 elsewhere (apparently ’cause we wacky Westerners LOVE the alphanumeric salad).

No word yet on when the robo-vac will be available in the US, or how much it will cost, but given its 21 sensors, a 32-bit processor, a gyro, a HEPA filter, a Lithium-Polymer battery, and other tweaky parts, we can almost guarantee it’ll be a lot more than the Roomba.

(Adorable Korean remote-control operator sold separately.)
