So it's not actually a robot, but from the same company that brought us the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vac is now coming out with a competitor to the Dyson Stick vac's, the Roidmi F8 Storm.

I managed to get the $269 Secret deal due to backing another of their projects in the past, but even at $289 USD I reckon this is a great deal.

The bluetooth stuff is a bit gimmicky but at half the price of a dyson and including every accessory, I couldn't resist.

If i didnt have the Mi Robot i would buy this instantly.
Before i purchased the robot vacuum i was considering a handheld cordless vacuum, almost bought a dyson but ended up with my current robot.

I've got 4 robots in the fleet already but I'm finding with 2 young kids is really hard to use them frequently. The only things that get a frequent robot clean are the bedroom's upstairs and the garage (that's the Roomba's job).

My five year old son frequently dumps sand all over the hall way and using the botvac to clean the area is more trouble than its worth. The stick vac will be great for that sort of thing and imo cleaning the cars. Our old Vax is just a pita to lug around and mainly gets used to clean the robot fleet. :D
