Sit back and watch the remote vacuum do all the work!
With the remote vacuum there is no longer the problem of having a large cord following you all over the house . This is a good idea for people who are lazy, handicapped, or are too busy. There are two ways of working this devise. 1) just like a remote control car, you hold the controller and have it
clean where ever you would like. 2) preset the vacuum to the area of the room, and every thing is done for you. Now, even the kids might actually pick up the remote for the vacuum, and before they know it the floor is spotless.
Roomba Intelligent Sweeper Vac
One already [baked] version of this idea. Not remote controllable, actually a robot that decides on its own where to go. [krelnik, Oct 11 2002, last modified Oct 04 2004]
||There are several extant efforts
at robotic vacuum cleaners (I'll
try to dig up some links). None
of them seem terribly successful.
I haven't seen any remotely
controlled vacuum cleaners; that
might work better...
