Clean machine: LG's latest smart vacuum cleaner has sensors to understand exactly where it is, where it has been and where it needs to go.

The HOM-BOT Turbo+ boasts something called Home-Joy which, the company claims will make the new device simple and intuitive to use.

LG's latest smart vacuum cleaner uses three camera sensors so that it can track the world around it, including the ceiling, to understand exactly where it is, where it has been and where it needs to go.

It can send a live feed of its progress to the owner's smartphone and when it's not on cleaning duty can be deployed as guard dog. It can scan the room for movements and if anything or anyone appears out of the ordinary, raise the alarm and send photographic evidence.

As for Home Joy, that's the name LG has given to the cleaner's user interface. Pull up the live feed image of the room that needs cleaning, and tap on the areas that need to be vacuumed and the HOM-BOT Turbo+ will do the rest.

The HOM-BOT Turbo+ will make its debut, alongside a host of other LG vacuum cleaners, at the 2016 International CES, which opens its doors to the press on Jan 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada. — AFP Relaxnews
