Everywhere you go, there are bacteria. Even on the cleanest sheets, the shiniest pillowcases, and the freshest blankets, bacteria are lurking. You can't see them with your naked eye, but they are there nonetheless. No body sleeps alone. These bacteria cause us to catch colds, to pick up viral infections, and to put our health at risk. There is no telling just how many bacteria you are facing in any given day.

Eliminating germs and airborne viruses from your environment, ROCKUBOT is your safety buddy, the cool and cutting-edge robot that focuses entirely on keeping you safe and healthy in your home or hotels. Finally, you don't have to wonder whether or not you have just stepped into a viral hotbed every time you go somewhere new. You don't have to question whether or not you are going to end up sick tomorrow just from laying down in your own bed.

We have engineered several advanced features into ROCKUBOT, all of which combine to make this the most efficient germ-eliminating robot ever to hit the market.

ROCKUBOT is a robot that everyone can learn to love. If you are:

You are going to love what we have created!

Here is a video from Sci-Inspi of UV effects on bacteria time-lapse:

ROCKUBOT functions by attacking bacteria, germs, and mites with its UV-C light and ultrasonic wave technology. It can kill 99.99% bacteria, germs and mites in just seconds.

UV-C Light Kills 99.99% Bacteria , Germs and Virus

UV-C light has been used successfully as a germicide and bactericide for decades. It can kill or disable the growth of micro-organisms like bacteria, viruses and other pathogens, and it provides a chemical-free alternative to other disinfection methods, like using chlorine. Due to its effectiveness and advantages, UV-C is being used for an increasing range of applications. It is used, for example, for disinfection in wastewater treatment plants, laboratories, air-conditioning systems and even pools and aquariums as well as in various stages of food and beverage industrial processes. UV-C is also used in medical and hospital settings to sterilize instruments, work surfaces and the air.

 Ultrasonic Wave Kills Mites 

Besides, ROCKUBOT also uses powerful ultrasonic waves to deep clean mites and germs. Ultrasonic wave is a kind of sound wave whose frequency is higher than 20,000 Hz, it has strong penetration ability, can repel the mites hidden deeply in the mattress at the microscopic level. ROCKUBOT can produce variable frequency ultrasonic wave which can control the nervous and auditory system of mites, then control mites sleeping, feeding and spawning. The ultrasonic wave is inaudible to humans but audible to insects, harmless to human and pets.

This robot is FCC, CE, and SGS certified, and as powerful as the technology is, it is also family-friendly. We tested the ROCKUBOT with E. Coli, Staphylococcus Aureus , and Candida Albicans. We also tested 900pcs living mites with the disinfection of ROCKUBOT. There was no mites living after the tests.  The results showed that the ROCKUBOT can kill 99.99% bacteria and 100% mites.

We tested the power of the UV-C light of the ROCKUBOT. The Testing equipment showed the power of each UV-C light is 3080μW/cm². This power level can sterilize bacteria and germs in seconds.

The 24 smart sensors and navigation system guide ROCKUBOT to avoid obstacles and overcome even the most difficult terrain.

Auto Sensor on Top

Likewise, the cliff sensors prevent ROCKUBOT from taking any high falls. 

Underneath a blanket, ROCKUBOT can clean in both directions at the same time, sanitizing and disinfecting your sleeping area for you and easily climbing over lumps in your blanket and mattress.

With the innovative technology, ROCKUBOT boasts its smart mapping and navigation which allows the robot to adapt any environment to clean the bed and room properly with ease.

To use ROCKUBOT, simply select  automatic mode or manual mode.

Using automatic mode, ROCKUBOT can disinfect and sterilize the beds by following the data with its smart sensors.

And in manual mode, smart sensors can also control the roll once someone picks it up, and switch ROCKUBOT to its manual mode.

The cover is equipped with the magnetic system for your easy use. You can partner with ROCKUBOT to clean any surface – pillowcases, toilet seats, light switches, bathroom fixtures, toys, cellphones, keyboards, TV remotes, and more. It's chemical-free, mess-free, and ultra-reliable.

ROCKUBOT can play music with Bluetooth 5.0, you can enjoy your favorite music while sanitizing. That's why we call it Rockubot and let ROCKUBOT rock your world. 

Even in two-speaker stereo, thanks to TWS (True Wireless Stereo) pairing. When you pair dual ROCKUBOT units together, one will play the left channel while the other plays the right channel. Wow – let's enjoy the party mode with amazing sound TWS robot!

Let ROCKUBOT rock the world!

Dr. Raphael, together with Dr. J, make up the ROCKUBOT Team. As a mysophobic, Raphael has always been afraid of getting dirty, bringing wet tissues with him everywhere he goes. Dr. J has got an allergic constitution since he was 6 years old and is badly allergic to mites. After meeting in a robot interest team during seeking PhD degree at HKUST, Dr. Raphael and Dr. J started to collaborate and then developed the concept that led to ROCKUBOT.

Our mission is to help people who struggle with the same issues with which Dr. Raphael and Dr. J struggle, and we had been striving hard to make ROCKUBOT  as smart, effective, and convenient as possible. At the same time, we did our best to make it a personable robot – hence the high quality Bluetooth speakers!

After overcoming many engineering and production challenges, we are now finally ready to move into mass production. We have worked with multiple factories to select the right partners, and within 2-3 months since launch on Kickstarter, we shall be able to sell off our initial order and then get to work on producing more.

Are you ready for ROCKUBOT to rock your world?

Risks and challenges

Our founder Dr. Raphael and Dr. J have designed electronic products for over 10 years and sale worldwide over $3M. Our team has extensive experience in robot design and manufacturing high quality and high reliability products. We’ve been developing this robot for over 2 years. ROCKUBOT has successfully completed the prototypes, molding, and pilot production process and tested over 1000 hours working time.
With our current production capabilities, we should be able to produce the units sold on Kickstarter in 2-3 months. We are still constantly receiving feedback from our testers, improving the product and adding more features to it as we go to make it even better! We have our manufacturers lined up, and our production team is waiting for our signal. We know what we're doing, and you should be confident that we will deliver what we promise when we say we will.
We're deeply committed to and excited about delivering a high-quality and high-reliability robot, on time, that we know you'll enjoy for a long time to come. Should any issues come up, you can be confident we will handle them with transparency and the utmost care for you, our backers.
Thank you for your support! We are deeply grateful that you're on this journey with us! In case you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail us at hi@rockubot.co
