Many people think of robotics as something that belongs strictly in the realm of science fiction. The truth is that almost one million robots are in use today all over the world. Soon all of our most mundane household tasks will be performed by robots. A great way to take advantage of the time saving potential of robotics is with the "real" robots featured below.



   Rovio Wi-Fi Enabled Robotic WebCam

A revolution in home exploration and telepresence, Rovio is a WiFi enabled robotic webcam that moves in any direction and can be controlled remotely. View and interact with Rovio's environment through its streaming video and audio from its built in camera.

With Rovio, you will always be just a click away from the people and places that are important to you. Rovio is the Wi-Fi equipped mobile webcam that enables you to view and interact with its environment through streaming video and audio, wherever you are! Easily control Rovio remotely 24/7 from anywhere in the world! Use any web-enabled device like T-Mobile BlackBerry Curve, PC or Mac, cell phone, smartphone, PDA or even your video game console.


The TrueTrack Navigation System allows you to use the Rovio interface to store waypoints with one click and Rovio will automatically navigate itself to the chosen point. Rovio's built-in LED headlight will help you guide it even in dimly lit locations, so you'll always know what is going on at home or at the office. No need to worry about Rovio running low on power while you're away the self-docking function allows you to send Rovio back to the charging dock to recharge (dock includes an AC power cable with US plug and UK adapter), with the click of a button on your browser. When its done charging, Rovio is ready to take its next tour.

   iRobot 530 Roomba Vacuuming Robot

This smart, powerful, and autonomous vacuum features iRobot's proven and patented three-stage cleaning system. First, innovative spinning side brushes grab dirt and debris from corners and along wall edges, then two high-speed, counter-rotating brushes pick up pet hair, food crumbs, and other debris. The powerful vacuum sucks up the debris and deposits it into a large, easy-to-empty bagless dustbin.

The improved fine-filtration system traps dust, pollen, and other allergens inside the robot, reducing infiltration into your living environment. The cleaning head automatically adjusts to transition from wood, tile, and linoleum to carpets and rugs. Improved anti-tangle technology ensures it won't get stuck on cords and rug fringe. If Roomba begins to pick up a cord or carpet tassel, it will automatically reverse the direction of its brushes to extract the item. Roomba senses dirtier areas and spends more time cleaning them, and it uses built-in cliff sensors to avoid stairs and other drop-offs. When the job is done, Roomba returns to its self-charging Home Base to dock and recharge between cleaning cycles or when the battery is running low.

The Roomba 530 features a friendly and informative audio voice demonstration that walks you through initial setup and alerts you when Roomba requires maintenance or assistance. Starting a cleaning cycle is simple--just press the "Clean" button and Roomba does the rest. First it will calculate the size of the room, the obstacles in the room, and the cleanliness of the floors. Then it goes to work all by itself. At the end of each cleaning cycle, Roomba 530 returns to its Home Base to dock and recharge. Yes, it's that simple. Routine maintenance is a snap. The large-capacity bagless bin is easy to slide out, empty, and click back into place. The brushes and filters can be easily removed by hand for routine cleaning and maintenance.

Roomba calculates the appropriate cleaning time and pattern for each area and adjusts its behavior over 67 times per second to achieve the most thorough cleaning result. On average, Roomba covers every part of the floor four times. A gentle-touch bumper system senses obstacles, so Roomba automatically slows its approach, gently touches the obstacle, then redirects to continue cleaning under or around the object. Because it cleans under furniture, Roomba actually vacuums more of the floor than a standard upright can--and you don't even have to push it around. Roomba's Virtual Wall creates an invisible barrier that it will not cross (two Virtual Walls are included with the Roomba 530). To mark off-limit areas, simply place a Virtual Wall at a doorway or other opening and adjust the infrared beam setting to the distance of the opening. Roomba automatically detects the beam and will not cross it. The vacuum's advanced power system consists of a fast-charging battery, a three-hour charger, and a power source that supercharges the unit for up to 120 minutes of continuous cleaning, covering about three to four average-size rooms on a single charge. When the battery is low or when Roomba has completed a cleaning cycle, it automatically returns to the self-charging Home Base to dock and recharge. As a member of the newest generation of Roomba innovation, the Roomba 530 features a more powerful vacuum and redesigned high-speed, counter-rotating brushes that pick up more dirt, pet hair, dander, cat litter, crumbs, leaves, and other debris.

   Robotic Lawn Mower

An ideal product for people with disabilities, busy families, or individuals who'd rather drink a Manhattan on the patio than cut the grass!

The Robomow RM400 is an automatic lawnmower that cuts the grass all by itself. It comes with an optional base station and it will depart at the pre-set scheduled days and times. At the end of each operation Robomow returns to the base station for charging until the next scheduled operation. Your lawn will be maintained even when you are away from home. The Robomow is designed to handle lawns of up to 4300 square feet. Simply set a weekly program for the days and times you want the lawn mowed and it will do it automatically for you, day after day and week after week.

The Robomower features a compact one blade mulching system and theft protection including an alarm system. A tilt sensor stops the blade immediately when Robomow is tilted. This unit is equipped with a rain sensor which will prevent it from coming out of its docking station and mowing in the rain. Dimensions: 25" long x 21" wide x 12" high. It weighs 39 lb. Mowing height is adjustable between 0.8 to 3.1 inches.
