Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on July 4th, 2011

The Roomba is pretty cool as far as robo-vacuums go, but you can’t exactly have a conversation with it. What kind of vacuum bot doesn’t even talk?

It can run diagnostics at the press of a button and then tell you if any components are broken. But it won’t help you fix it. Oh well, it’s still progress.
