It’s July 5 (or somewhere around there), and your house is still kind of a wreck from the Independence Day festivities. That’s OK. We’re not here to judge. But imagine you had a handy voice-controlled robotic vacuum that you could call on to make quick work of all those Dorito crumbs and firework ashes. Right now, Amazon has the Shark AI Ultra robotic vacuum for $299, which is half off of its retail price and the lowest price we have seen all year

Shark AI Ultra Voice Control Robot Vacuum with Matrix Clean Navigation $299 (was $599)

Some robotic vacuums are high-maintenance divas, but this isn’t one of them. This powerful little vac uses a LiDAR navigation system to make a detailed map of your space. Its powerful suction mechanism combines with a burly rotating brush to capture any random detritus occupying your floor. Once it’s loaded up with crumbs, it automatically heads to its home docking station, where it self-empties into a bin that you won’t have to touch for up to 60 days. It’s compatible with Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can tell it when it’s time to clean up.
