Bosch is known in the U.S. for the finest high end luxury appliances for kitchen, ovens, dishwashers etc. Specialty dealers and contractors, interior designers more than stores.

The post mentions virtual boundary marking on the smartphone matching Neato Robotics recent new model announcement. So the industry is aware of this potential. Expect more offerings of such software.

The picture makes me wonder about the bumper being too high for low obstacles.

It has always been possible to make these more advanced robots, with the issue being cost and whether a market exists for such high priced machines. Growth in popularity of robots appears to be supporting this expansion of the offerings.

I noticed Best Buy (U.S.) showed Bosch appliances in store, so maybe this robot will show up. They had Roomba, Neato, and Samsung Powerbot on display with stock -- with Roomba 980 running cleaning the counter top.
