    Default Robots in the home

    Do you or would you own a vacumning, floor washing or lawn cutting robot?

    They used to be called Roombas and Rumbas but I think there are different brands now, anyway, do you own one or would you own one given half a chance?

    Does anyone remember "DJ Roomba" from Parks and Recreation? It was a Roomba that someone had attached lights and speaker doc and an iPod to which was driving around a house party blasting out the tunes, I think the idea is awesome, especially if you could some how sync the speaker doc with stationary speakers around the home.

    I would get one if it were cost-effective, reliable, and programmable by the user.

    Future ones would be a good idea for providing at-home care for the elderly and vulnerable; would delay entry to care homes and wouldn't be tempted to slap the client around if it thought no one was looking.

    Maybe the 20th version, on account of the first 19 probably being terrible at the job.

    No way man. They start by feigning ignorance and innocently sucking up dirt.

    Next thing you know, their adaptive AI is covertly monitoring and tracking your life, and then slowly sucking up that.

    Hence the need for the user to be able to (re)program the thing.

    My neighbors aren't doing anything remotely worth monitoring from what I can tell.

    I like the sort of home vacumn system in that Carlsberg ad.
