Ecovacs Robotics 'Winbot™,’ the first and only robot designed exclusively for cleaning windows, swept the "Household + Home Environment Electrics" category taking this year's coveted Innovation Award at the 2013 International Home + Housewares Show.

According to the International Housewares Association, which stages the annual trade show at Chicago's McCormick Place, there were nearly 500 product submissions this year, all vying for first place in one of 13 Innovation Award categories. Sixty-five finalists were chosen and voted on by members of the press and major retail buyers at the event.

"We are absolutely thrilled to receive the 2013 Innovation Award from the International Housewares Association," said Nick Savadian, Executive General Manager of Ecovacs Robotics. "To have our Winbot named the most innovative product in the Household + Home Environment Electrics category is very gratifying for everyone in our company."

Winbot was selected as 2013's best cutting-edge innovation in its category by a panel of distinguished industry experts, seasoned designers, retailers and the news media at the event.            

The Winbot™ does all kinds of windows, including Thermopane windows. It's the first-ever window cleaning robot that cleans either inside or outside windows. Winbot works on both the inside or outside glass. Ready for full production, Winbot will soon be available for distribution to retailers.

The new window cleaning robot is very user friendly and comes with detailed instructions for proper use that makes cleaning windows a breeze. Simply put the pads on the Winbot and mist with the solution. The user just places the Winbot on the window and a blue light comes on when suction takes hold. The device first measures the glass and then begins a zigzag pattern that covers every inch of the window.

Winbot contains pads that can be reused many times. The wet pad moistens the glass, a squeegee cleans it and another pad will dry it. When the glass is clean, Winbot will return to its original starting position and signal that the job is finished. An air release trigger will free it from the glass.        

With “Live Smart. Enjoy Life.” as its main focus for consumers, Ecovacs Robotics is a firm that is truly on the cutting edge of robotic technology. The company's scientists and engineers are constantly pushing the envelope, filling the pipeline with wondrous products that amaze us today and are destined to become tomorrow's essentials.

Hosting more than 2,100 exhibitors from around the world, the 2013 International Home + Housewares Show is the largest event in the housewares industry. Sixty thousand people were expected to attend the show this year.
