Roomba Roach

extra shell to fit unto your roomba vac

Roomba Roach is a carefully moulded shell that clips onto the back of your roving vacuum cleaner, converting it into a large cockroach.

With its flickering feelers and twitching legs, the roomba will set off as usual making its cleaning rounds, only this time it looks like a great scurrying insect. Roomba Roach covers can be ordered to fit most major vacuums of the auto-cleaner type, and comes in a variety of subtle colours.

We also make Roomba Loco for garden auto vacs. These are similar to Roomba Roach, but have green backs, so your lawn might appear be under attack by a large and particularly voracious locust.

deluxe version of Roomba Roach has mechanical munching jaws and can "eat" small items it encounters, such as wayward lego bricks etc

A derivative idea; shameless elf-promotion. [8th of 7, Dec 07 2020]


       Can there be an arachnid version ? That would send some people screaming for the exits ... <Evil sniggering/>   

       [+] because even a cockroach would alarm and upset those inexplicably scared of little non-venomous creepy-crawlies.   

       // children? //   

       The garden version could be adapted to dispose of any unwanted pests such as juvenile humans and cats. A modified ride-on lawnmower would be needed but that's just a small technical detail.

       [8th of 7]; that reminded me of a particularly disturbing scene in the movie "The Happening" (OK, a lot of it is disturbing...).
Man starts a large ride-on lawn-mower, puts it into gear, then goes and lies down in front of it.

       Can I have a Roomba Shark?

       I started reading this and thought damned this is good..... why didn't I think of this? then of course realised it's one of mine after all.
