Roomba Rumble

The other day I was at LOL Cats, because who doesn't love cats that can't spell? Nobody, that's who. And while there I saw a video of a cat riding a small disk like objected called a Roomba. What the hell is a Roomba? I had no idea, so I did what any good North American would and Googled it.

Well a Roomba, I have learned is this VERY cool robotic vacuum cleaner. I am so in love with this thing right now I can barely think straight. This handy little thing can vacuum up to three rooms while you are at work. It has a built in positioning system so it can actually sense stairs and objects and move around them. And it is so close to the floor that it can get in under your furniture. And be honest, when was the last time you cared enough to vacuum under your furniture? Never, right?

Well, I totally want one. Must have one. I mean what is the down side? This thing vacuums while I'm not home, the cats can ride on it, and when it is done it drives it self back to it's dock and starts recharging. I mean all I have to do is hit the power button. Canadian Tire, here I come!

Ahh the Roomba, I saw one at Costco the other day. I was suprised to see it there.

You should see the crazy hacks people are doing to it.

Really, you had never heard of the Roomba before? They have been around for a while now.

And now that I live in a place with all laminate flooring, I am seriously thinking of getting one myself!
