Games you can play with your Roomba...

Whines bought me a Roomba for my birthday :) It's so cute, and wanders around eating floor stuff and bumping into things and getting trapped under the kitchen cabinets.

We set it loose in our bedroom when we were going out last week.

So...I'm male, I don't deny that. And...maybe I had a small amount of reading material of a prurient and licentious nature under the bed. It's a possiblity.

I'm not sure why the roomba decided that it would be for the best if it shoved it out into three neat piles in the middle of the room.

*looks embarrassed*

I'm calling it Nannybot now.

It was telling you "Books and magazines go on a shelf."

We tried getting a Roomba. It did a scan of the room, went to the corner and wept bitterly for an hour. So we took it back.

Ship me those magazines and you'll not have the problem again :)

*snickers* Sorry, those are for me and the roomba :)

Our house is mostly open spaces and tile, except for the TV room, which as a lot of obstacles. So it's pretty easy for the little device to navigate. The one problem is the kitchen, where the counters are just high enough so that the machine can, at certain points, fit its little hight sensor underneath the counter, and then if it moves a few inches, it can't escape.

you have induced giggling at work.

it's still better than half my female friends whose mothers/sisters have been sitting w/ them in their dorm or adult room and rummaged in drawers or under beds (i don't know what these women were thinking) and managed to pull out er... feminine exercise equipment?

See, the roomba pushing one of *those* across the room would be really cute. It'd bounce in a merry way.

Haha. I'm so happy that these wonderfully disastrous things happen to you, because you share them and they brighten my life considerably.

You should glue googly eyes on and name it... awwww. It's like a pet.

Hee. It'd only be disasterous if I had a significant other that I had to explain anything to, as opposed to one that's tolerant of most of the things I do. The only way I could seriously disturb Whines is if I suddenly switched to Mac OS :)

But did it organize the magazines by titles alphabetically in those "three neat piles" ?

Now, really, that's a lot to ask of a machine that gets confused by an endtable :)
