Wash and Dry, Robot Style

Posted by: Cliff Edwards on May 23, 2005

So we know the Roomba robotic vacuum is big on wow factor and short on actually cleaning your floor, but what about Scooba? You guessed it, the folks at iRobot are at it again with a “revolutionary new hardwood floor cleaning system.” The demo sure looks good, and I for one don’t want to be like Madge soaking in it. But we’ll have to wait for the holiday to see whether it really works. Given the Roomba’s track record and its admitted novelty use, I think I’ll keep my mop and bucket around just a bit longer.
