RoboMaid, the robotic sweeping machine from Europe! The most amusing European robotic sweeping machine ever! And only US$10!
  • Still, it's no Roomba. Though you could get an army of Robo-Maids for the cost of one Roomba... "Go my Unholy army of Robo-Maids! Go into the night!"
  • Damn. The name was so sexy that I wound up being disappointed with the product.
  • RoboMaid: with frilly outfit and realistic back-door entry!
  • If it's from Europe it's gotta be good!
  • I just have this picture in my mind of the people over at Roomba cowering . . . with laughter!
  • I submitted this to Engadget over the summer. I saw an infomercial for it, and thought it was hysterical.
  • Oh - even funnier, I notice that it was $20 in August. Robomaid price war!
  • The Europeans have no respect for classic American design.
  • Heh! It doesn't work. Consumer mags in Europe wiped the floor with it.
  • Bad Skrik. You go to your room.
  • Since it only costs 10 bucks, there's no way in hell I would be able to resist the urge to kick it across the floor in a fit of annoyance. "Wha-? The Official Ninja Webpage again?!" ZZZZZZZZzzzzzing! "Hello? Yes, I'm interested in your buy 6 get 1 free special..."
  • Even if it doesn't work as a sweeper it would make a great cat amusement device.
  • > cat amusement device does... not... compute... a cat is an amusement device!
  • RoboMaid makes me think of Richie Rich's robot maid/bodyguard Irona. Or Peter Weller with an apron and duster.
