Roomba RedThe Roomba Red robotic vacuum by iRobot is a squat little creature that, according to the literature “happily” cleans floors, under furniture, etc. It’s fun to watch as it figures out the best way to navigate a room, and it drives my dogs nuts.

My Robosapien had better watch out … there’s a new robot in town! Time for a little battle-bots action! 🙂

  1. I was having problems with the Roomba getting “stuck” and going in circles, almost as if one of the wheels was not turning properly. After cleaning it all out and still having the problem, I did some searching on iRobot’s web site and found that there was a software upgrade to correct this “circle dance.”

    I opened up a support ticket and they sent me a little purple device called the Osmo. It connected to the serial port of my Roomba and updated the software … and fixed the problem!
