I watched the Matic robovac suck up a glass of milk.

This Wall-E-esque robot vacuum and mop made a trip to The Verge’s CES hotel room to show off its unique skills, including cleaning up liquids.

It ably sucked up milk off the hard floor and cereal from the carpet, but its most surprising feature in our demo was how quiet it was... just 55db.

The $1,800 robovac’s speed and maneuverability were also impressive, responding on the fly to obstacles and moving almost... gracefully?!

There are still some kinks to work out, but it’s a promising evolution of the run-of-the-mill robovac.
