Japan has always been a little different, that’s why it’s so loved. So check this out.

Sharp has developed a new version of its Cocorobo robot vacuum cleaner that plays J-Pop as it sweeps.

But not just any J-Pop, these are songs sung with vocaloid, a popular voice synthesizer from Yamaha.

Sharp said it heard complaints from users that they didn’t like to hear the sound of the vacuum cleaner.

Depending on your music tastes, this isn’t necessarily preferable, but at least it’s unique.

It’s not on the market yet. At this week’s Ceatec electronics show in Japan, Sharp is just testing out the idea.
