Roomba gets hopped up on carpet dust, trips home alarmRoomba owners should really shut their bots off before leaving their house and arming the alarm system. Here’s why. A Roomba in a Denmark home got all hopped up on dust and dirt and tripped the motion sensors. It was just jonesin’ to snort some debris while its owners were out on the town.

The alarm was tripped, and the authorities were automatically phoned. They arrived to see that the little bot had gorged itself in a shameless and lonely orgy of filth. Otherwise all was well.

FootLume glowing rug: No more stubbed toes
Nothing sucks more then walking around in the dark and stubbing your toe. It hurts like a @!#*!…The FootLume carpet design should be able to help with that. It’s a high-tech rug with electroluminescent lights and weight sensors. As you walk in the dark, the rechargeable rug lights up and guides you. The light won’t bother those still sleeping and best of all, no stubbed toes.

Two students at London’s South Bank University designed it. The prototype was shown at the Ideal Homes show, where they hoped to find a manufacturer. We may actually see this one on our floors pretty soon.
