iRobot Scooba 230 Robot isn’t Quite Rosie

I want a robot in my house so I can be extra lazy and spend more time with Gran Turismo 5 and watching TV. I want the thing to cook for me, mop, help with homework, and mow the yard. Most of that stuff is not going to happen any time soon. However, iRobot has a cool new robot that will at least keep me from having to mop.

The new ‘bot is called the iRobot Scooba 230 and it is very small, and designed to clean your hard floors so you can do other things. The small bot is 3.5″ tall and 6.5″ in diameter and is small enough to go under furniture and around most toilets. That last part is a big deal if you have boys in the house that think getting in the vicinity of the water is good enough.

The ‘bot has a three step cleaning system that scrubs, washes, and squeegees your floors and the container inside for cleaner can hold enough juice for 150 square feet of hard floors. The Scooba 230 also has virtual wall tech to keep the little thing form heading onto your carpet by mistake. The robot will ship this spring at an undisclosed price.
