Robot vacuums have been fairly well commoditized, but there seems to be plenty of room for innovating mopping robots. Samsung’s Jetbot Mop has one of the more unique designs we’ve seen.

The 15-inch-wide robot uses two disc-shaped water reservoirs, called the “water supply kit,” affixed with mopping pads to propel it across the floor as they scrub.
