Suckling at the electronic teat

Our new Roomba Scheduler at its charging station.

(And I’ve finally realised that iRobot’s devices remind me of various types of trilobite. It’s that head shield and the way they scuttle around the floor…)

    I really want one of these but they suffer from dalek syndrome and I have many stairs ;-).

    BTW have you seen these ?

    I want an electronic trilobite! It doesn’t even have to do anything useful!

    I want something with hands and a good book filing and paper sorting program. Not anything likely to be available soon.

    Or the Buffybot, of course…

    You did know that Electrolux’s robo-vacuum was called a Trilobite, didn’t you?

    this is interesting. I suffer from dog hairs in the house. Usually it aggregates under chairs, tables, hHiFis. We have no stairs so this may actually be useful the problem is these things don’t look all that big and the amount of hair I collect every few days is equal to that of an entire VAX vacuum cleaner… so probably it’s a ways off before it’ll replace the broom and mop and bucket of soapy water.

    Nice looking floor BTW — engineered wood flooring or laminate? Did I miss you putting this stuff down?
