postheadericon Samsung ‘TangoView’ vacuum surveillance camera will bring you to your knees

In a new milestone testing the limits of convergence, Samsung has just released a WiFi-connected robotic vacuum cleaner with an integrated “TangoView” home monitoring system onto the unsuspecting families and pets of Korea. Like LG’s Hom-Bot, first seen at CES in January, Samsung’s latest Tango cleaner (model VC-RL87W) features an integrated video camera that lets PC, smartphone, and tablet owners treat the vacuum as a remote controlled surveillance camera when not sweeping the floors. The relatively quiet vac operates at 48dB and features a microphone and external lighting. Why? Why not, we say, assuming you can get past the KRW799,000 (about $711) price tag.

Samsung's Tango Stealth robo-vacuum is a quiet intruder

Special forces can leave no trace and make no sound, but Samsung‘s Tango Stealth vacuum does them one better: not only is it quiet but it picks up the traces others have left. It’s the latest in a long line of robo-vacs from the company and it’s the quietest, making just 50db of noise while dutifully looking for targets of opportunity on your hardwood. It’ll start shipping in Korea soon at a price of 750,000 Won — about $670. Special faces do cost more than normal ones.

postheadericon Screen Grabs: Tango supplants FaceTime for Big Bang Theory videocall

Screen Grabs chronicles the uses (and misuses) of real-world gadgets in today’s movies and TV. Send in your sightings (with screen grab!) to screengrabs at engadget dot com.

It may not share the same level of name recognition as FaceTime (or heck, even Fring), but Tango’s multi-platform videocalling app is still a very real alternative. So real, in fact, that it was just used in an episode of The Big Bang Theory as a highly fictional (and severely busted) character makes an outlandish videocall to a mythical group of friends. Or was it all just a dream? Hop on down to the source link (and fast-forward to the 13th minute) to find out.
