Hello Kitty Roomba

Posted in Roomba by Conner Flynn on September 17th, 2008

Hello Kitty RoombaFor those who hate Hello Kitty, you’ll be happy to know that she has lost her DJ gig and now has a janitorial position cleaning the filth off your floors. Why in the hell we need yet another Hello Kitty item is beyond me, but if we must, at least she can get her paws dirty.

iRobot and Sanrio must have had a few drinks and a bright idea about how to open up to a new demographic. We can be thankful of two things: Only 500 units are made and it’s only available in Japan. It will cost roughly $810. Sadly, too expensive to buy on impulse and let it play in the road.

New iRobot Roomba 500 series vacuum cleanersiRobot has today released a new series of its Roomba vacuuming robots, marking the first new model upgrade in about 3 years. The model comes with a number of new and improved features in three different versions; the 530, 560 and 570.

According to iRobot, the new Roomba’s are completely redesigned giving 100% more effective vacuuming. The higher-end 560 and 570 feature a 2.4GHz RF integrated with something called Virtual Wall Lighthouse. The Lighthouse system lets you put a RF-based “virtual lighthouse” in each doorway of your home. The Roomba will know not to pass through the doorway until a room is completed, and it will know not to go back through that doorway until the next time it’s scheduled to run.

Speaking of scheduling, the new 500 series vacuums now have scheduling built directly into the device. They also feature IR sensors …

iRobot Roomba Scheduler Vacuuming Robot
I would have to say that vacuuming is my least favorite housecleaning activity. Like most people, I spend a lot of time away from my house and I don’t always have the time to clean when I am home. The problem is that I like to have a fairly clean house with minimal work when I do get home. Thankfully I can get a robot to do my cleaning for me.

The iRobot Roomba Scheduler Vacuuming Robot with Intelli-Bin is the latest vacuuming robot innovation from iRobot. This new, sleeker model offers all the features of the Roomba Scheduler, plus the added benefit of Intelli-Bin. Intelli-Bin takes the guesswork out of when to empty Roomba’s bin. An indicator light lets you know when your bin is full.

Go ahead and check vacuuming …
