For some reason the Mocoro Robotic Fur Ball Vacuum Cleaner seems a lot lazier than it’s cousin, the Roomba. However, the Mocoro has a unique twist that only the Japanese could add to a robotic dust sweeper: it’s cute as hell.
The Mocoro Robotic Fur Ball Vacuum Cleaner, which comes in pink, orange and shocking green, and looks like a ball covered in shag carpeting, operates on an internal timer and rolls around your living space, or office for that matter, picking up dirt and dust in all those hard to reach spaces. This adorable dust magnet will also run continuously for up to three hours on 3 old fashioned double A batteries.
The fur ball is actually quite an ingenious combination of aesthetics, human laziness and technology – purely because of its simplicity. Surely you’ll have to do some manual sweeping once and a while, but the Mocoro should take care of those annoying dust bunnies, especially in those places like under your bed and desk.
Best of all – if you are enough of a clean freak to buy this thing in the first place – the product comes from Japan, so you don’t have to worry about the Mocoro not being easy to clean after a hard days work killing dust. The dust killer is made out of a mop-like, microfiber material and comes with a little brush for cleaning – all you have to do is run it under some water, rinse and leave it to dry.
You can pick up the Mocoro Robotic Fur Ball Vacuum Cleaner for $71. It should be noted that this duster hasn’t been tested on carpet, but so far works great on hardwood and vinyl floors. Also, the directions in the box are only written in Japanese, but they are quick to stress that it’s most likely all pretty self-explanatory. Just take fur ball out of box, place in batteries, and watch magic happen.
