The New Roomba Can Mop Floors

New, 3 comments

Next step: sentience

The Roomba is no longer a one-trick pony cleaning robot—iRobot, the company behind the famous vacuum/tiny butler, is releasing the iRobot Braava Jet 240, which uses Swiffer-like pads and water to clean tile and hardwoods. Going at this rate, if Roomba learns how to do one new thing every 14 years, we can expect a robot that picks up your socks and puts them in the hamper by 2030.
