I hate window washing, but I love robots.  Whatever am I to do?  Thanks to an Australian designer and the Electrolux company both of my problems are solved.  The Geco, solar powered, robotic window washer has come along to make all of our lives easier.

The genius is all in the details; “The robot has an advanced micro fibre ring that spins while it cleans. Its ‘gecko feet’, made from nano technology, keep it fixed to the window”. And like its rainforest namesake, the Geco will blend perfectly into any background by changing its colour.
