[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Brian Tong: Brian Tong here at CES 2010. I'm here with the Mint automatic floor cleaner. Now, you might be looking at this thing. It's a robot that cleans floors, but this is not a Roomba; it's a lot smarter than it. Now, Mint is using their NorthStar technology, and what it involves is this device. This is a beacon, and it shoots two points of infrared light on your ceiling. Then the Mint device sees those two lights... kinda triangulates it and creates a map of the floor, so it's a lot more specific, and basically systematic in how it cleans the floor. Now, if you take a look over here, on the backside, this has this micro fiber cleaning cloth. This does clean hard-surface floors. You can put a dry clean pad or a wet clean pad on this. And it's pretty easy... just pop it off. It's magnetic and pops right back on. And they're looking to sell the Mint for under $250. The pricing is not specific yet. And some time available in Spring of 2010. But there you have a first look at the Mint automatic floor cleaner. ^M00:00:55 [ Music ]
