Roborock S7 Robot Vacuum and Mop, S$692 (was S$899)

The Roborock S7 is the latest generation of the robot vacuum cum mop under the Xiaomi brand. I wonder why this time-saving gadget was not under my radar until a pal alerted me to it. Imagine having all that time saved vacuuming, plus mopping, allowing you to pursue your hobbies or simply have time for your loved ones. With a mere click on your app, the machine uses the sonic mopping technology, scrubbing up to 3,000 times per minute. Plus the S7’s VibraRise mop lifts when a carpet is detected, so you can mop hard floors and vacuum carpets in a single clean. What a nifty way to level up your cleaning process without lifting a finger.
