Samsung Electronics has launched its latest autonomous robot vacuum cleaner, the Tango, which is capable of vacuuming hardwood floors, carpets, and even beds without human assistance.

The Tango is fitted with a 30 fps camera to help the device see where it's going, to map its way around and remember its course. It also has an improved gyro to help it keep its sense of direction. The new device's crash sensor can detect objects from as close as 2cm (under 1 inch) away. In total, the device has 13 sensors to enable it to see the dust and avoid bumping into the furniture.
