The robot cleans and dries the surface simultaneously
Armaan Gupta was drinking juice and spilt it. While any other child would’ve lied, cried, or mopped up the mess with a cloth, Armaan, who studies in Class 5, was inspired to create a remote-controlled cleaning machine.
His mother encouraged the idea and found out that Somaiya Vidyavihar, an educational campus located in the Vidyavihar suburb of Mumbai, has an incubation lab. She took a membership for Armaan and with no one to disturb him, the little wizard went to work.
