iRobot Create draws on the floor

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2009

Who needs a printer when you have a robot that will gladly print on your floor? Don’t worry all you clean-freaks, it also cleans up after itself. This Roomba was hacked and outfitted with printer parts and now gladly treats your floor like a wall to be graffitied. Is that a word? It is now.

It draws, or prints in powder. Luckily after you are finished drawing, the bot can just vacuum it all up. Might be a fun way for spies to deliver messages. Be here at 3:15, get the message from the bot and order it to clean up and erase the evidence.

Floor-wiping robot is like a cylon worm that evolved from the Swiffer

The Fukitorimushia floor-cleaning robot wipes instead of vacuums, like an inchworm with a cylon eye. Designed by Panasonic, the little robot is wrapped in a nanocloth sleeve, which collects dust and debris as the robot crawls, worm-style, across your floor.

Yes, what we have here is the swiffer evolved. Its also has sensors to seek out dirt, so it will focus on problem areas first, then move on the assorted crumbs. Nothing on price or availability yet.

Ceiling track broom is useless but cool

Ceiling track broom is useless but cool
This is one of the coolest ways to get out of housework that I’ve seen yet. Who cares that it does a crappy job. Fact is, you are getting out of doing housework. It was designed by Servet Kocyigit as an art piece in 2005. It’s named Blue Side Up and if you only have a small strip of floor that gets dirty, or if that is all you care to clean, this is the perfect solution.

Of course, one big drawback to this is that you would never be able to close the doors in the rooms where the broom sweeps. Pretty neat. But a dangling monkey with some scrubbing tools would be far more entertaining, zooming around your home. Of course, then you would have to clean up after it. So, I guess this idea is as good as it’s likely to get.
