Home Helper Robots

Roomba and Scooba are the wildly popular floor cleaning robots. Looj cleans the gutters and Verro cleans the swimming pool.  All of these home helper robots do a bang up job of those messy chores that keep you from enjoying life. Meet them here.

All were created by the same company, called iRobot, which is growing rapidly. Remember that silly TV show called 'the Jetsons'? Well, that was just fairy tale fiction back then. Now that can happen in real life. The floor cleaning robots are about the size of a frisbee. All they need is electricity juice to run on autopilot.

Tired of endless household chores like cleaning floors? ... and gutters and your swimming pool and...? The home helper robots have arrived, ready to be set on automate so that those ugly jobs can be done while you play, work or sleep.

About the iRobot Corporation

The iRobot company was founded in 1990 with a bunch of techies from MIT. Robotocist techies, to be exact. After a slow start in the first decade, the company began to expand and grow in the dawn of the 21st century. This company in Bedford, Massachusetts is now the leader in the creation of robots for home helper robots.  They've also created unique robots used by the U.S military.

Just Imagine...

What would we name an iRobot who cuts the grass?   Mowba?  We shall see...

      Thanks Bundle Boy...Spielberg's movie is science fiction while these robots are real, wouldn't you say? Surely they would have SEEMED to be science fiction many moons ago, now becoming more common AND more affordable.
