Domestic Innovation, Part II
While I'm on the subject...
Gizmodo points us to an article that offers a solid assessment of two autonomous vacuums. While I abhor ironing with every molecule in my body, I really enjoy vacuuming. It offers tangible results on a larger scale than ironing. In terms of square footage, I can accomplish more with a Hoover than I can with the afore-mentioned Black & Decker in the same amount of time.
But even the Roomba had me excited. I heard the distant echoes of Ron Popeil's mantra: set it and forget it. From this article it seems that this shall remain a dream of mine.
Not much power. Not very smart. Not terribly efficient. Roomba, you're an iron.
