"Limbo is a fully autonomous house cleaning robot that is the future of cleaning technology and robotics. This cleaning robot is unique because it does not require an external power source, and has the ability to climb up and down stairs. The power comes from a new technology called, microbial electrolysis. This process converts bacteria into energy that is stored on a fuel cell. This process is very new, and holds the potential for true sustainability into the future.
The name "Limbo" derived from the robots' ability to extend or lower its' axles and wheels to move around obstacles. The innovative honey comb inspired wheels maintain rigidity and provide flexibility. This allows each wheel to individually flex and compress to be able to climb up and down stairs."
