Neato Robotics has announced its BotVac line of robotic vacuums. The Neato BotVac 85 robot vacuum is pictured above. The robot vacuums feature a brush that Neato says is 50% bigger than those found on competing robots. Neato says the bot was designed to hug walls. It can clean within 10 millimeters of the wall. The robots use navigation software based on SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) to navigate a room.

Neato will launch its BotVac line in April 2014 with four models that feature different brush and filter options. The robots will range in price from $479 to $599.
