Fukitorimushi Cleaning Robot

Panasonic has revealed a strange new cleaning robot at the recent Tokyo Fiber Senseware expo in Milan. The robot is wrapped in Nanofront, a special polyester cloth based on nanofibers, developed by Teijin, Ltd. The cloth can absorb oil and pick up even ultra-fine dust particles. The creepy robots drag themselves around the floor like inchworms, using light-based sensors to find the dirt ( play the video ).

The robot are also capable of finding their power station and recharging when needed. Despite the creepy appearance, the designers claim owners will develop pet-like affection for the robots before long.
