Quite frankly, I’d be willing to pay at least an extra $300 for realistic cat behavior (i.e. keeps bumping into the door to be let out, not leaving when you finally open the door, et cetera). Bonus points if it also looks like a kitty-cat.
If that’s not yet feasible from an engineering standpoint, I’ll settle for it not watching me masturbate.
(ugh, I keep giving serious answers to these. I’m sorry. IRL I answer everything with sarcasm and puns. Thanks for letting me be different here meh’ers!) Separates plastic, compostable, and glass (Yikes! Yeah, aren’t you glad you got a Roomba?)
Wash, dry, and fold laundry. Not asking for much, really. You just toss your clothes on the floor at night and then you collect them from a neat pile next to the docking station after the roomba finishes its cycle or whatever.
Also maybe it could sort, count, and roll any change it comes across.
Roombas freak me out. I already anticipate the question of why (reasonable question)… there’s something about them plugging themselves back in when their batteries are low that just really, really unsettles me.
