Robotic vacuum cleaner news.

Quote
If you just want something that’ll do some vacuuming so that you don’t have to, iRobot has recently announced a new Roomba option. The Roomba i3 is iRobot’s new low to midrange vacuum, starting at $400. It’s not nearly as smart as the i7 or the s9, but it can navigate (sort of) and make maps (sort of) and do some basic smart home integration. If that sounds like all you need, the i3 could be the robot vacuum for you.

I've always kinda wanted one, but it just wouldn't work well enough in my house to justify the cost. Three levels with carpeted stairs, loose stuff everywhere, and a need for high power to get all the hair out of the shag carpet.

I felt that way too when I first heard about them. I had been trying to build one of my own. Eventually I did get one of the earlier models that didn't map automatically. It was fun to use and did a good job, but it was slow and noisy. I had to remember to start it before I was going out, or it would get annoying. Doing the vacuum cleaning yourself is faster and good exercise, especially if you have a good quality cordless vacuum cleaner like the Dysons that are available now.

Still, now that you mention it, I would love to get a Spot or an Anymal and equip it with a vacuum cleaner.
