After 11 years and dozens of models, the Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner has seen plenty of improvements. iRobot has just unveiled the 800 series, and the cleaner-bot has a significant design change: no more big brushes.

The Roomba 880 has a pair of rubber rollers that make it outperform its predecessor, the 790.

The 880’s AeroForce cleaning technology is the subject of what’s probably the most over-the-top robotic vacuum cleaner video ever produced, embedded below. The music alone makes it worth a watch.

AeroForce is essentially two treaded rubber rollers in Roomba’s belly that spin in opposite directions. Angled treads on the rollers enhance the sucking power of the air flow by creating a sealed channel to the floor.
