iRobot has patented an intelligent new navigation system for Roomba. The company faces new competition from the Neato XV-11, with laser- guidance and mapping, and the Mint Cleaner, so this doesn't come a moment too soon.

At my blog, Robot Stock News, Neato Robotics' VP takes on iRobot's Roomba in an hour-long lecture at the famed Palo Alto Research Center. Fascinating look at how their new XV-11 robot vacuum came to be, including the first consumer laser guidance system under $2,000.

iRobot filed a patent application for a Roomba with a Square-Sided front, which is intended to better clean corners and edges. Pics at the link!

I've uncovered a new 1-pound military micro robot called iRobot Ember. The idea is to send out swarms of these robots to set up and instant wireless communications grid on the battlefield, but there could be a lot of other uses besides.

Worth a look!


iRobot files plans for a New iRobot Robotic Lawnmower! Lots of pics and details at the link (goes to my blog, Robot Stock News). Enjoy!

iRobot has released the NEW Roomba 570, Roomba 560, Roomba 530 and Roomba 510 robots!!! Many, many improvements on the old Roombas. Pics and details at the link.

iRobot has confirmed that they will launch a third generation of the famed Roomba robot vacuum later this year, Robot Stock News reports. The new Roombas are expected to feature improved reliability and a Lighthouse feature so they automatically know which rooms they have cleaned.

iRobot will launch a new programmable robot it is calling the "future of consumer robotics" at CES, Robot Stock News is reporting. (Hilarious video invitation is at the link!)
