      Solar Power Cell Kit House - Sharp 'LumiWall'

      Imagine a roof that looks like shaded glass by day, but by evening is transformed into an illuminated array of white LEDs. Sharp's LumiWall promises to do this, and it's powered entirely by thin-film solar panels inside the glass.

      My Personal Thought
      Solar Power Cell Kit House - Sharp 'LumiWall' only available on 2007. I think this product would be a benefit to skyscrapers, maybe industrial buildings, and maybe greenhouses, but we doubt that any people will install in the roof because you have to take off the ceiling. If not, what the use of the white LED?

      Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum - iRobot Roomba 4230 Remote Scheduler

      • Traditional vacuum cleaner has evolved into Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum, introducing iRobot Roomba 4230 Remote Scheduler. Yup, it’s a robot but in a form of compact vacuum cleaner. It is also doesn’t have any bag to trap the dirt. With Roomba unique Scheduler, you can easily program Roomba to clean when you want. All you have to do is only set the time you want iRobot Roomba to clean and Roomba will clean the entire floor everyday. When it finished cleaning ot when the battery is low, it will return to it’s home base and recharge automatically. This is the future vacuum cleaner should be.

        How Roomba Cleaning System Works?

        Roomba features a patented 3-stage cleaning system that is proven effective. First, the small spinning side brushes grabs dirt and debris in corners and along walls, sending it into the main cleaning path. Second, two counter-rotating brushes pick up large particles, pet hair, and other debris. Third, an extremely efficient vacuum picks up the remaining fine particles. All of the dirt and debris is deposited into a large capacity, easy-to-empty bin.
        Roomba's cleaning head automatically adjusts to any floor surface including wood, tile, linoleum and low-to-medium pile carpet. Roomba can even sense dirtier areas of your floor and will clean more intensely there.

        Roomba automatically calculates the appropriate cleaning time in any situation. Roomba will cover every part of the room an average of 4 times per cleaning cycle, and because Roomba cleans under furniture and other obstacles--Roomba actually cleans more of the floor than standard uprights. Roomba will even return back to its self-charging Home Base at the end of a cleaning cycle or when its battery is running low.
        To start a cleaning cycle, simply press the clean button and Roomba immediately begins calculating the size of the room, the number of obstacles in the room, and the cleanliness of the room. Roomba automatically monitors its environment and adjusts its behavior over 67 times per second.

        When Roomba start cleaning, it will calculated the the room condition like wall, cliff, size, obstacles and many more situation for optimum cleaning. Don’t woory about stairs and other cliffs, Roomba have a cliff sensor so that Roomba will turn away from such problems. Roomba advanced power system take Roomba only have to charge approximately 3 hours for continuous usage up to 120 minute or 2 hours cleaning times.
