The Samsung Jet Bot AI+ Robot Vacuum Navigates, Cleans, and Spies for You

Despite being a full-blown nerd from an early age (“Why do you always have to fiddle with things?” my brother once demanded when we were kids), I’ve rarely been an early adopter. I don’t get version one releases of software, cars, or new gizmos (with the notable exception of the iPhone). And I still don’t have a robot vacuum. But maybe I should take a look at the new Samsung Jet Bot AI+ Robot Vacuum, hm?

Samsung Jet Bot AI+ Robotic Vacuum

Robot vacuums have been around for quite a while now, and I’ve lost track of how many people have told me I am an idiot for not getting one. I mean, I do have an awful lot of hardwood and tile floors in my house.

I always object to things like cost, the fact that I have jumpy pets, I don’t want to program them, battery power, I’m confident I’ll trip over them, or that they’ll go crazy and take over my house.

Bushwah, say the folks at Samsung! They’ve equipped the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ Robot Vacuum with an Intel AI solution and an active stereo-type 3D sensor so the Jet Bot can “think” and make decisions on its own — with regard to gauging the layout of your living space and navigating around objects (including pets), at least.

The Samsung Jet Bot AI+ Robot Vacuum has a live-stream camera so you can keep an eye on your pets — or anything else going on in your house — if you want. But I have to say that the Corgi in the above video doesn’t look too thrilled at being spied on.

The Jet Bot can also identify the type of surface and the level of dust it encounters, then automatically adjust its suction power to clean thoroughly.

As you’d expect with a top-of-the-line robot vac, when the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ Robot Vacuum is done with its floor cleaning mission, it docks with its Clean Station and empties itself. It also captures 99.99% of the dust, which is a help if you have allergy problems, like my son.

And like everything these days, the Samsung Jet Bot AI+ Robot Vacuum comes with an app so that you can do all the monitoring and modification of programming from your handheld device. Because after all, heaven forbid you actually have to sit down at your laptop to do such things anymore. (Or good lord, do it through the actual device!)

The Samsung Jet Bot AI+ Robot Vacuum is available now for $1299 from Samsung and select dealers.

About the Author

Douglas Moran
Born in New England, as a Navy brat I traveled all over the NorthEast before settling in the California East Bay for 6 years, followed by planting deep roots in the city of my collegiate alma mater: The beach town of Santa Cruz, of all places. But Navy brats don’t usually have hometowns per se, so I get to pick mine and I choose the ‘Cruz. Make of that what you will. A nerd of long-standing, I took my first computer programming class on a Commodore Pet (2K of RAM!) in 1978 and have never looked back. I have built a solid, creditable career as a technical writer, information architect, and web site manager at companies large and small, from start-ups you’ve never heard of to places like Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, & IBM. And at the same time I’ve been putting forth my opinions every place I can get an audience, from the letters columns of Newsweek, various newspapers, and NPR, to online places like and my own blogs. Not forgetting my lengthy side-career of posting tech reviews, news pieces, and opinions at the wonderful tech site Gear Diary. In my spare time I write fiction and publish it on Wattpad; learn Lindy Hop and West Coast Swing; take Tai Chi; and spend entirely too much time reading and watching science fiction.
