You know, like the Roomba vacuum cleaner or one of the robotic lawn mowers. Anybody have 'em? How do you like it?

Roomba:



Robomower:

I use to sell them at Brookstone, the people really liked it and we would have it run around the store. It did a pretty good job, i'de recommend one.

I'm terrified of robots.

The first time one of those abominations is checking the mail next door at my neighbors house(probably in the next 10 years), I'll be on the receiving end of a lawsuit for destruction of private property.


...thank God they're made of plastic....so when I hit them with a nail-bat (Louisville slugger with 20d nails driven through the fat end) they'll go down quick



...fistful full of boomstick for all robots in my vicinity

...not putting up with it.

destroy all robots now, otherwise the ACLU will get involved...and then...well....nevermind

I have a US Robotics modem card.
Does that count?

If you have to ask, I think you already know the answer.

My Roomba Discovery works excellent.

I pick up the big things off the floor, turn it on and go to work.

I have a roomba red and it works well.

There is a roomba sitting in the closet here. Useless. It scratches wood floors, and doesn't have enough power to vacuum a large room before it dies.

Nothing but a gimmick.

You have an AIBO? Dang, I'm jealous and green with envy. I always wanted one of those.

I have 2 small robots I built a few years ago that I let run around on my window sill. They're about the size of a half-dollar coin, and run off of Solar power. Really neat little critters. They home in on the sun (As best they can from the window sill) and track it all day.

Plans? I'd like to try my hand and building one.
