The latest Forbes has a robot round up, 7 robots that will change your life, along with 25 of the greatest moments in robot history. There’s also a profile of our friends at iRobot, at the end of the article it seems like we can expect a robot lawnmower from iRobot soon, huh – “One of the bestselling robots in history, oddly, turns out to be as ugly and impersonal as a bathroom scale. And all it does is patrol the floor and pick up lint from under the couch. It’s the Roomba vacuum cleaner. Roomba is what happens when robo-wizardry collides with practical needs.” [via] – Link.

Pictured here, control a Roomba with a DIY bluetooth project – Link.

    There are already several robot mowers on the market. See:

    Seem like they are for institutions, cemetaries, etc. A home use one for roomba prices would be a new thing.
