Cleaner Tank

Abrahms, anyone?

Have a remote control tank, with those anti-static dust clothes replacing the rubber treads, a broom attachment, and incorporate a vacuum cleaner.

Also included, as kbecker suggested, are suction cup treads for cleaning the walls, ceiling and windows, if you have walls that suction cups can stick to..

Drive it around and it can clean any floor. Have fun doing it, too. Or set it on autoclean, remotely driven by a computer that knows the current layout of the house

It could use the gun for spraying cleaner fluid on things, as nielp suggested.

Any other suggestions?

Have we had a remote control hoover before - this seems like a charming addition to the house cleaning portfolio.

       Perfect, nielp.

       I would see it spraying carpet cleaner in front of it. That'd be cool. If you could explain the treads a little more in detail I'd appreciate it, I'd hate to leave tracks where I just cleaned because my treads were getting dirty, or my RC mop just ran over some spilled drink.   

       However, the idea for a vacuum cleaner with a remote control or even automated movement is relatively well done, except for its silly price tag. Check the link for Brookstone's 'I have enough money to pay for robot maids' toy.

       Infomercial: ... if you call within the next 30 minutes to order your "Cleaner Tank" you get an additional pair of suction cup treads absolutely free. Suction cup treads allow the tank to drive up those hard to reach windows and clean them.

       Good idea, kbecker. Although it would be easier to have the gun telescope out to clean windows.   

       What the heck, have stainless steel walls and ceiling so the tank could climb and dust everywhere.   

       Cheekio, those little static clothes that you dust with, those cover the treads as to dust where it drives.   

       Also, i've added that it can be set on autoclean.   

       Kbecker, thanks for the idea, I've added that too.

       Ugh, this stain is too tough, looks like I'm gonna have to get out the... +
