The iRobot Roomba does my carpets

Those of youse on my Facebook friend list saw this post about ten minutes ago:


So I thought I’d point those interested souls to this site:

image It’s the iRobot site and we also use the Scooba for scrubbing the wood floors. They even have iRobot Looj for cleaning gutters; how cool is that! Here are some FAQs about the Roomba:

Can Roomba be used on deep carpets and hard floors?

Yes! Roomba picks up an amazing amount of dirt, dust, pet hair and other debris from your carpets and hard floors. Roomba automatically transitions from one floor surface to the next, including carpets, rugs, tile, linoleum and hardwood floors.

How do Virtual Walls and Virtual Wall Lighthouses work?

A Virtual Wall®  creates an adjustable, invisible, infrared beam that Roomba will not cross. Virtual Walls are used to block off-limit areas in your home. We have three versions, including a compact Virtual Wall and an Auto Virtual Wall.
A Virtual Wall Lighthouse™ can be set to Virtual Wall mode or Lighthouse mode. Lighthouse mode ensures the most efficient room-to-room cleaning. It confines Roomba to one room until that room is thoroughly vacuumed then directs Roomba to the next room. It can also be set to Virtual Wall mode to block off-limit areas. To determine Virtual Wall or Lighthouse compatibility with your Roomba, see the Virtual Wall and Lighthouse product pages.

How do children and pets react to Roomba?

Everyone’s children and pets react differently; most tend to be curious at first, then get used to it soon after. In fact, many customers write letters (and send photos) about how entertained their pets are with their new robotic friend. Roomba is ideal for keeping up with pet hair, crumbs and everyday messes that accumulate on your rugs and hard floors.

I ordered mine on and got them within days. What astounds you about technology today?  :O)

    I enjoy hoovering, well more the noise of it than anything else I find it relaxing, so unless the Roomba makes a typical hoover noise then I can’t see me getting one. Love the idea of them though, and the thought of one day having cars that operate on a similar idea, of not having to drive … it does it all for you, maybe then I would be allowed to have a car. as for what astounds me about technology; the main thing is just how much has changed in my lifetime, we’ve gone from having 3 TV channels to hundreds (granted there’s very little on them), but the idea of of how much has changed in the form of communication in general, from the medium of TV, computers and how when I was born a computer used to take up a whole room, now they can fit into your pocket, the world has become a much smaller and accessible place. that has to be a good thing, I sometimes wonder though how much we are losing or sacrificing in the name of technological advancement.hugs debsxXx

    Yup, and we are the pioneers, Suzy and I, testing the product and filing improvement suggestions. We are on generation three and they are making huge strides to make it ready for the general public. That’s be 40 pence please. ;O)Regarding the car, it’s still as low tech as one might want it to be. I’m guess some oldsters who buy one like this don’t use half the new features. Ever watch a kid texting… now that’s just scary. They are lightning fast and oblivious to their skills.
