iRobot - Roomba 560

Finally - I get to command my own robotic minions... well, one of them at least. Tomorrow I expect delivery of a robot vacuum cleaner - the Roomba from iRobot (link in title). This little feller should skirt around the house whilst we are away and keep it nice and clean for us. It can be scheduled up to once per day at set times, finds its way back to its base station when it needs a charge and avoids stairs, walls and furniture. OK OK - it *is* a bit weighted on the novelty side and less on the functional side but I just could not resist.

Have to think of a name for it now... suggestions?

Wonder how the cats will like it...?

Update: It arrived - photos!
