Robotic Vacuums


iRobot Roomba – why would you not buy it?


Robotic vacuum cleaners like iRobot Roomba are life changing products. They do a job for you and do it better than you would do it. They can keep small living spaces tidy and clean every day and all you have to do is press one button. They are the “effortless vacuum cleaners”. Even a daily maid service won’t be able to keep up with “Roomba’s” cleaning performance. No need to struggle with any attachments, hoses and cords. iRobot Roomba meticulously cleans every corner in your place and under the furniture and you can just sit back and relax.

The design is based on the philosophy that robots should be like insects. Since Robot is an insect it uses a robot-insect2combination of simple behaviors that can reach a complex goal. The company claims that the Roomba has “more than 40 robotic behaviors Roomba is a compact, computerized vacuum cleaner which is a combination of motors sensors, and navigation system that automatically guides itself around your home


irobot-roomba-650These small disk-shape devices navigate around furniture and come back to a docking station to charge their batteries. They pick up dirt just like a conventional vacuum, and automatically move themselves around your home. They are very “serious” creatures.

Basically iRobot Roomba is a combination of a robot /computer and a vacuum cleaner. It is an intelligently planned and designed mechanism.

Some models are programmable, so you don’t have to do any of the work. You just set the schedule to do it while you are asleep or at work. When you wake up in the morning or arrive home after a hard day’s work, the carpets are clean, and the air is fresh. It’s just wonderful.

Some models come with a remote control. The latest Roombas offer Wi-Fi connectivity which means you can program them from your smartphone or tablet with a simple App, even when you are away.

Roomba is very easy to use, just put it on the floor, press the CLEAN button and Roomba does its thing. Roomba works very well if you run it regularly. It will return to its dock with a bin full of dog and cat hair and dust. One of the best things about iRobot is that it cleans under the furniture and it can do it every day, not just during spring cleaning. It heads under the couch with determination and swims out almost “proud” of itself. Because it cleans under the furniture, it actually covers more of the floor than a standard vacuum cleaner.

Roomba also features audio voice demonstration which is very useful.
