Robot Vacuum Cleaners Taking Off

Remember the "great sucking sound" that we used to talk about? I think it's the Roomba. In 2003, IRobot sold 470,000 units of the Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner. In just the first three months of 2004, the company has exceeded that total, and has high hopes for the second generation of the product.

Buying a robotic vacuum cleaner and lawn mower is definitely in my future purchasing plans.
