Roomba Avatar??

Posted in Uncategorized by beebe4 on July 7, 2005

In an interview on, iRobot co-founder Colin Angle (makers of the Roomba) said that they are looking into turning the automatic vaccuum cleaner into an avatar that you can control from a web page! Sounds pretty damn cool to me, but also very scary.

They are also coming out with Scooba, a self mopping robot.

    I read about this in Newsweek (or maybe it was Business Week). Anyway, there was a small side article about the Roomba inventors and Clorox joining together during the invention of the Scooba.

    I dunno, everyone seems to like these lil’ inventions, but I find ’em creepy. And being that I occasionally get OCD, I would probably end up following behind the Scooba just to make sure it does the job right.
