And now for another chapter of Vintage Vacuums with Norm:
Here we have Roomba’s Great Great, Great, Great, Grandpa, the 1959 Whirlpool Robo-Vac. This fine piece of technology was introduced as part of Whirlpool’s “Miracle Kitchen Of The Future” display at the American National Exhibition in Moscow.
Anne Anderson watches in amazement as this little beauty uses sensors to maneuver its way around your home, just like the robot vacuums of today do. This cold war event showcasing American exceptionalism to Russian Comrades attracted over 3 million visitors while on display for a little over a month.
As always remember, Dry soil removal by vacuuming on a regular basis will maintain your home’s carpet in top shape and help it to last longer.
