Irish Examiner – VR100 Feature – Product Watch
We were very pleased when the lovely folk at the Irish Examiner, one of Ireland’s most-read newspapers, gave our trusty VR100 robot a sparkling review.
The team were impressed by the robot’s sleek appearance and thought it packed a major punch in terms of performance thanks to its ability to climb over door bars and navigate from carpet to smooth floor without faltering. Our kind VR100 was even lent to a poorly lady that was recovering from emergency surgery. Having a robotic vacuum at her fingertips meant she didn’t have to lift anything heavy but could still have a freshly vacuumed home in which to recover. How’s that for nice!
