We went to our son’s apartment to celebrate his birthday and saw his Roomba for the first time.
That thing is SO cool!
It has a button on top that when pushed has a nice female voice introducing you to the Roomba while it demonstrates some of its moves.
It fairly quietly moves about the room vacuuming. It has little brushes that help clean along walls and baseboards. It goes forward and when it meets an obstacle, it backs up. It also can detect dirt and go back over it until it no longer detects it.
When the battery starts to run low, it goes back to its docking station that can be seen in the upper right of this picture.
Not sure if it is a comment on me or the Roomba, but it is really quite entertaining.
