Evolution Robotics Brings All-New Mint II Automatic Floor Cleaner Exclusively to Kohl’s Department Stores

November 10, 2011

PASADENA, Calif., Nov. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Evolution Robotics, Inc., a leading robotics technology company, today announced the debut of Mint II Automatic Floor Cleaner, which is now available at Kohl’s Department Stores. This exclusive Mint cleaner model is sold at nearly 600 Kohl’s locations nationwide and online at www.kohls.com.

“We’re delighted to partner with Kohl’s and thrilled to offer our customers an exclusive model that is not available anywhere else,” said Dr. Paolo Pirjanian, CEO of Evolution Robotics. “By diversifying the existing product line and making it more accessible, we’re hoping to find a new following of loyal Mint supporters who can appreciate a product that was designed to give them more time to spend doing the things they love.”

The exclusive Mint II Automatic Floor Cleaner is available in an all-new chic charcoal and white color combination that integrates the recently released Pro-Clean System, allowing the system to mop better and further than ever before. A special Reservoir Cleaning Pad dispenses liquid throughout the cleaning cycle, continually refreshing the Pro-Clean microfiber cloth with fresh fluid. The fluid reserve keeps the cloth damp so the Mint II Automatic Floor Cleaner can mop large areas of up to 350 square feet in a single cleaning cycle. The system also has a battery life that allows for up to three hours of sweeping time and up to two hours of mopping time.

The new Mint II Automatic Floor Cleaner is now available exclusively at Kohl’s and comes packaged with a NorthStar Navigation Cube, a Pro-Clean reservoir pad, four washable, reusable Microfiber cleaning cloths, two “C” batteries and a charger.

Mint II can automatically sweep and mop hard surface floors using popular cleaning cloths, such as Swiffer® brand Dry and Wet Cloths and other similar products. The NorthStar Navigation System works like an indoor GPS that helps Mint keep track of where it has been and where it needs to go.
