Fun with Roombas

Posted 28 Jul 2003 at 17:09 UTC by steve Share This

Roomba weirdness continues. An Anchorage Daily News story describes some of the names people are giving to their Roomba vacuum cleaner robots. Hazel and Rosie seem to be the most popular. Other Roombaphiles have added Roomba-cams to their websites or post photos of the strange patterns the robot leaves in the carpet. At least one owner has dissected a Roomba.

I wonder what video format he's is using for the video clips? Or what version of Windows Media Format he is using. My Windows Media Player states that the formats are invalid and refuses to play them.

I recently bought a roomba and it works really well. My sisters 2 and 4 year old kids absolutely love it and have spent a lot of time "feeding" it different types of junk - crushed biscuits, dust, bird seed, etc

My floor has never been so clean.
