Evolution Robotics, Inc., a leading robotics technology company, today announced that the company's Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner is now available at all Bed Bath & Beyond stores nationwide and online at www.bedbathandbeyond.com.

Mint is a robotic floor cleaning appliance designed exclusively for hard surface floor cleaning.

Packages of additional/replacement microfiber cloths are also available for purchase at Bed Bath & Beyond®.

“We are very excited to be partnering with Bed Bath & Beyond®,” said Dr. Paolo Pirjanian, CEO of Evolution Robotics. “Customer reaction to Mint has been incredible, reinforcing our belief that a hard surface floor cleaner that is automatic and easy-to-use serves an unmet need in the market. The Mint Cleaner will free Bed Bath & Beyond® customers from the chore of floor cleaning, allowing them to have cleaner floors and more time to spend doing the things they enjoy.”

Mint adapts to different home environments using a range of sensors and employs advanced navigation technologies to deliver a systematic and thorough floor cleaning.
