Narwal Self-cleaning Mopping Robot
In 2019, Narwal launched the world's first self-cleaning robot mop
& vacuum for the home. Shortly after, Narwal got in touch with
LEAPX to help in developing the next generation of their already
Following extensive ideation and testing the LEAPX team proposed a
number of solutions that redefined the product architecture to enhance
the user experience.
In increasingly small living spaces, products that occupy large
floorspace can become too obtrusive. With this in mind we focused on
minimising the product footprint. By combining the two water tanks and
raising them off the ground we also substantially improved the user
experience of replenishing water.
The modular design of the water tank means the most appropriate container
can be selected for any space. An automatic system requires no user

be matched to the size of the home.
Rapidly iterating on form-factor using the iPad's AR capabilities.
Used water can be emptied from the concealed central container while
fresh water is replenished in the surrounding reservoir.
Utilising a stainless steel cleaning tray reduces odor and increases
