Dustball by Dave Hakkens

Dustball by designer: Dave Hakkens is a robot vacuum cleaner inspired by a hamsterball I and designed for public spaces.
There are a lot of robot vacuum cleaners on the market but al designed for households. However they are fragile and not made to go over any cables, thresholds etc. This one had to be strong, industrial, flexible. However I did not want to give it an industrial/robot appearance.

Usually there is no interaction with a robot vacuum. I created a little friend just rolling around and which you could push or kick in a direction to clean. It’s has no trouble with cables or anything like that, it’s strong, and when it rolls before your feet you just kick it out of the way.

 The motor inside doubles as the dust bin and drives the unit by rotating on 2 axes to generate enough force to move. When full, it automatically returns to its starting point and glows. Again
