To get a picture of Roborock’s strategy for APAC in H2 2022, I asked Joan Hu five questions.

Q1. Roborock has recorded a strong growth in China since its introduction. What do you think contributed to this?

In the robot vacuum market back in 2014, most available products only focused on the basic need that comes with a vacuum – cleaning.

We saw an opportunity to fulfill needs and wants that consumers didn’t know they had yet.

Hence, we grew our R&D department with a team of engineers, scientists, manufacturing experts and designers – all vital for creating products that truly fit our users’ lifestyle.

Q2. Any new vacuum launches this year?

We have just launched the Roborock S7 MaxV in early 2022.

This is an upgrade of our popular Roborock S7, with ReactiveAI 2.0 Obstacle Avoidance System.

The S7 MaxV recognizes objects in its path more accurately and adapts quickly to clean around them, regardless of lighting conditions.

It also features Roborock’s acclaimed VibraRise® technology, a combination of sonic mopping with an automatic mop lift designed to transition smoothly over contrasting surfaces, while delivering effective high-intensity scrubs to tackle surface dirt.

The Roborock Q7 Max robot vacuum cleaner and mop was launched in Singapore recently in April 2022.

Titled “Firefly Field”, this exhibit is by multidisciplinary design studio TOER of the Netherlands and is my personal favourite.

The exhibit comprises five zones which include holographic projections, illuminated motion-capture graphics and shadow play, as well as light beams that create a mystical forest, and a light art showcase.
