Limbo Robot by Elliot Cohen and Neil Vincenti
Limbo Robot by Elliot Cohen and Neil Vincenti is sort of like your own personal Mars-rover vacuum cleaner. Limbo Robot design is powered using the waste it “consumes” from cleaning your kitchen and other home areas. Yes that the designer idea, great right.
Limbo is a concept robot vacuum cleaner conjured up by industrial designer Elliot Cohen for US cleaning company Casabella’s 25th anniversary. The Limbo made its debut at this year’s International Housewares Show in Chicago.
It uses a process called microbial electrolysis; a proven process that uses bacteria as a power source. The flexible honeycomb wheels allow it to move over obstacles and even collapse to help guide it up stairs.
