Samsung FlexWash + FlexDry
Samsung’s latest laundry tech combines two washers and two dryers into one machine. You can use the front-loader to wash bigger loads, and the top-loader to wash smaller loads separately and on a different setting. With the FlexDry, you can dry larger loads, while drying delicates on the Delicate Rack zone on the top, which has a heated airflow. Plus, you can control the whole system with a smartphone, using the Samsung Smart Home app. Price and release date TBD.
LG Cordzero Stick
It’s annoying having to unplug and re-plug as you maneuver your vacuum room to room. The CordZero Stick has a motor that spins 16 times faster than an airplane engine—so it will leave your floors spotless with its powerful suction. The vacuum also has an advanced filtration system to keep dust out of your house. It comes with a self-standing charger, but it’s equipped with two removable batteries so you won’t run out of charge, whether you’re cleaning a studio apartment or two-story home. There’s also a canister version that automatically follows you throughout the room, so you don’t have to drag or pull on a cord. Price and release date TBD.
POWERbot VR7000 Vacuum Cleaner
This smart automated vacuum cleaner is super-slim—it’s less than four inches tall—so it can fit easily under the bed or sofa. The device has a self-cleaning brush system so you won’t have to worry about dust and other particles getting trapped. And did we mention it’s extra smart, too? It will map the room for you and detect obstacles, plus it automatically adjusts suction power depending on the surface. You can program cleaning times and start the machine with your smartphone or through an Amazon Echo device. Price and release date TBD.
