iRobot’s new Workshop Robot… Dirt Dog!

Roomba adds a new workshop bot to their line up, last week they announced a pet version too… – “The same size and shape as the iRobot Roomba® Vacuuming Robot, iRobot Dirt Dog features an oversized, bagless debris bin that is approximately 40 percent larger than Roomba’s bin. The robot also features two counter-rotating bristle brushes that spin at nearly 1,000 rotations per minute to pick up heavy debris such as nails, wood chips and small shop scraps. With brushes specially designed to sweep up dirt that clings to rough surfaces, the robot is recommended for use on hard floors, shop carpets and industrial surfaces only.” [via] – Link.

I’m going to ping them and see if they one can be modded/hacked like the current ones.
