Roomba

Just to follow up on the previous Roomba post, a quick note.

Strangely, Roomba changes your relationship with your kids in a small, subtle way. Here's how: You worry less when the kids make a mess.

An example. Today at the dollar store one of the kids bought a little six-shooter confetti gun. You know the little confetti poppers you see at parties (like these). They've managed to fit six of these in a little plastic revolver, and it costs a dollar. So of course, if you are a kid, the thing to do when you get home is shoot it off. And now the floor is covered with confetti.

Pre-Roomba, this is a problem. You want the kid to clean up the mess, right? It teaches responsibility and so on. But a 5-year-old is a) unable to operate the vacuum cleaner alone, and b) going to put up some amount of resistance to the "chore" (no, my children are not perfect). This is a pain.

With Roomba, this little vignette plays out differently. There is confetti everywhere, so you turn Roomba loose in the room. 30 minutes later the confetti is gone. Every bit of it. It is one less thing to hassle with the kids about, and that makes life a tiny increment better. Instead of the chore, they do homework or work on the science fair project or read a book or whatever.

Still hoping for Pickba in the near future, and wouldn't mind having Spillba either...

Have you seen Scooba, the floor-washing robot?
 
My daughter thinks Roomba is exciting, and a toy for parties.

The first time she saw one, she started cutting up napkins, and "feeding" the pieces to it, by depositing them all over the floor.

She also convinced the other kids that this was a good idea; They seemed to get into it pretty quickly.
 
You should sell Roomba on your website. So seriously it worth it?

My room is so JAMPACKED that the Roomba won't have much to clean. Except if it has a beeper and encouraged me to be more minimalist (of course space is a constraint, not just the minimalist mind). And even if I wanted to be minimalist... I have not enough room to sort my stuff LOL. It is a vicious circle. Erm.

The Sortba please.

I must admit that this is one great insight. It surely gives a company the opportunity to get in on the ground floor and really take part in creating something special and tailored to their needs. Acuvue Advance Astigmatism
 
very nice blog and quite interesting
 
I believe a two motor system vacuum cleaner will do a more effective job than the Romba Vacuum Cleaner.
 
If you need your vacuum repaired you can do it with a free estimate.
 
Interesting...
