This Robot Vacuum Cleaner Has A Roving Eye
When you get old, you should not have to vacuum. You read that here first. So someone invented a Laser Guided Robotic Vacuum (aka Neato Robotic Vacuum) for us boomers and other folks who would rather be doing anything else but vacuuming. Even if you had a maid, she wouldn't vacuum this good for, although the robot moves around a lot like a human, its laser vision is better than ours.
The vacuum's laser eye can find specks we can't even see, including bits of dust and pet hairs embedded in the carpet. And it lifts them up with one fell swoop.
The Laser Guided Robotic Vacuum is so smart, it makes a map of the house after its first venture around. It starts by cleaning the periphery of one room, even going under furniture to find it, and then it cleans the rest of the room, moving back and forth in parallel rows just like humans generally do (unless you're my husband), before starting on the next room.
The Laser Guided Robotic Vacuum doesn't bump into furniture because it sees it. It doesn't fall down stairs either. And, what's more, it finds its way back home once it learns the route, even accounting for furniture that may have been moved. Imagine playing tricks on a robot!
Watch this feller do its stuff and then find it at Hammacher Schlemmer - lifetime guarantee, remember?
