Samsung’s TangoView surveillance camera cleans and monitors
If Samsung’s efficient Tango robotic vacuum cleaner wasn’t smart enough, the makers have reached a new milestone; Samsung has just released a Wifi version, with an integrated “TangoView” home monitoring system in Korea. The latest Tango cleaner (model VC-RL87W) comes with an integrated video camera that allows PC, smartphone, and tablet owners use the vacuum as a remote controlled surveillance camera when not sweeping the floors.
The extremely quiet vac operates at 48dB, making it ideal for snooping around, and comes fitted with a microphone and external lighting. So what’s the hitch? Just its price tag of KRW799, 000 ($711), maybe?
