|iRobot Introduces New Mirra™ 530 Pool Cleaning Robot and Takes Looj® 330 Gutter Cleaning Robot International|
BEDFORD, Mass., Jan 04, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) --iRobot Corp. (NASDAQ: IRBT), a leader in delivering robotic technology-based solutions, today announced the Mirra 530 Pool Cleaning Robot and Looj 330 Gutter Cleaning Robot. These robots – and others – will be displayed at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, being held January 8-11. iRobot can be found in South Hall 3, upper level, booth 30665.
“Mirra 530 features the latest in pool cleaning technology and an easy-to-use design, bringing yet another state-of-the art solution to iRobot’s line of home robots,” said Jeff Beck, chief operating officer at iRobot. “This is also the first time that our outdoor robots, including the award-winning Looj 330, will be available internationally, a huge leap forward for the fast growing robotics industry.”
iRobot Mirra 530 brings advanced robotic technology underwater.
Mirra deep cleans any type of in-ground pool surface and water without using the pool’s filtration system, hoses or booster pumps, which results in energy cost savings from running these pool systems less frequently. Mirra 530 provides complete pool coverage and a thorough cleaning through its iAdapt® Nautiq Responsive Cleaning Technology.
iRobot Looj 330 cleans gutters on its own at the press of a button.
A CES Innovations honoree and Edison Award nominee, Looj 330 takes a dangerous job and does it for you, preventing overreaching and repeated trips up and down the ladder. Looj uses a high-velocity, four-stage auger to blast away leaves, dirt and clogs while brushing gutters clean.
Mirra 530 will have a suggested retail price of $1,299.99, and Looj 330 will have a suggested retail price of $299.99; both outdoor cleaning robots will be available in North America and select countries worldwide beginning Spring 2013 – check global.irobot.com for specific availability. Looj 330 is already available for sale in North America at iRobot.com.
