The vacuum cleaner has changed surprisingly little in the past couple of generations, so it's compelling to see a project like the Nanophea Robot Vacuum suggesting a remarkably different way to deal with dust. It may be unexpected to discover that it accomplishes this with the help of water.

Zaier Jihed designed this innovative appliance with the organic beauty of a lotus leaf in mind. The gadget putters about the room releasing drops of water to trap pesky particulate, sucking it all back in to give your tiled and hardwood floors an impeccable polish as well. In addition to making its rounds of your interiors quite dutifully, the Nanophea Robot Vacuum boasts the ability to return to its charging station automatically as soon as it detects that its power is low.
