We had a Roomba that we received as a Christmas present from my brother in law a long time ago. We sold it in a tag sale a few years after he gave it to us. We have too many area rugs with fringe.

I'm holding out for a robot maid, like Rosie from "The Jetsons."
If you use your imagination, you might be able to improve upon that as a wish list item. ;) Ms. Crookshanks perhaps?

Your version is close. MIT has one.

I know people who have come home to dog crap smeared all over their house from their Roomba repeatedly running it over
Could be worse.

I can’t even imagine the smell of burnt and charred sewage. Delicious.

I have a Deebot. It works but it doesn’t get every speck of dust. It’s nice to get under the bed and such.
We got one as a gift because my wife was talking about how much she wanted one (I"m fine with the Sebo vacuum the thing cost a fortune but its a killer machine) - that damn thing get stuck on table legs, pedestal base of a big industrial fan, etc, etc.

I'll take a real vacuum any day over it. What's it take me 10 minutes to vacuum the place - the house isn't 15,000 square feet for god sake.

My dog left me a surprise in the kitchen this morning. He's 13 and on borrowed time. He just can't always hold it, unfortunately.

To eliminate the possibility of the dreaded DoggyDoShmear, Just program this thing to make a pass around the house ahaead of of the Roomba.

I have hardwood throughout and mine worked great until the sweeper are broke.

If you are prone to having dogs crap all over your house, these products won't help.

I love my Roomba. Great in the kitchen with hardwood floors, cleans up all the crumbs. It even dusts the floor a bit, like a Swiffer would, so the floor looks a little shinier when it’s done. Ya it gets caught up if it runs over a sock or something but so does a vacuum you push. Would def recommend getting one.

Our's works great, of course the first time my dog saw it and we weren't home he flipped out, flipped his crate, # 2 everywhere, and ripped the carpet to shreds trying to dig out of his cage to get away from it. Was......not the best day.

I prefer the Arisa model in “Better Than Us”.

She's coming but most of us will likely not be around to see it.
It’s like everything else... porn leads the way. There would be no internet without it.
Surprised that no one caught this interaction. Not sure Champs realized the hilarity of what he wrote.
