Robot That Cleans Aquarium Glass

MOAI is a self-propelled glass-cleaning device that has a built-in HD camera, allowing take a picture at fish in different parts of your tank when you’re not there. The device consists of two parts – a unit located on the outside of the glass, and a corresponding bar on the inside with an algae-scrubbing pad. The two are attracted to one another through the glass via built-in magnets. When the outside unit is moved, the bar moves with it, scouring away the algae. The outside unit is a robot, that moves automatically. Users can set up a cleaning schedule via an accompanying app.

Robot has an integrated 1080p camera that allows users in real-time to watch fishes on the app, as long as the robot is linked to the home’s Wi-Fi network. It’s also possible to save certain locations on the front of the tank as favorites, where robot can be sent to for  fish-viewing. If users see something they like, they can snap stills or record video.

When the unit’s battery gets low, it automatically returns to a charging dock located on the front of the aquarium. MOAI is currently the subject of successfully funded Kickstarter campaign and if all goes according to plans, delivery is planned for next May. To see it in action watch a promo video below.
