LG Electronics introduces AI enabled robotic vacuum

LG has introduced the R9 CordZero robotic vacuum, with built in artificial intelligence machine learning. 

Courtesy of LG's 'Deep ThinQ’ machine learning tech, the R9 can recognise objects and room layouts and learn to navigate around them. The R9 uses an onboard camera and laser sensor to analyse the space, by mapping its path as it navigates around the room.

The R9’s Smart Quick Charge feature means that if the battery runs low before the vacuum has finished its full cleaning schedule it will automatically return to its docking station for a short duration charge.

The R9 HomeView feature lets users access the machine remotely via a compatible smartphone and view inside their home using the front mounted camera. Users can control the vacuums motion with the on-screen controls.

With the HomeGuard feature, the vacuum can be positioned in a set location in the home and enabled to detect unexpected motion. If something is detected, the vacuum takes 5 pictures of the area and sends them to a connected smartphone. 

The R9 CordZero robotic vacuum is available now for $1899 from Harvey Norman.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
