My parents got one for Christmas and they love it. It seems to be cleaning our concrete floor very well. My parents are weird, though because they talk to it and refer to it as a "he." I wouldn't go that far, but they are pretty neat.

that thing would scare the crap out of me.

Not to mention my dog. He'd probably kill it within the first few minutes.

You're 14. You're from Queensland. You lick cane toads. Hence, your opinion does not count.

Its an automated vacuum cleaner. It basically rolls around sucking up stuff randomly and if it finds a wall or something, it hits it and turns in a different direction. The part that amazes me is that when it is running low on batteries, it finds it's way back to its little "station" to recharge.

hah, this makes me want to move around the 'station', untill I confuse the fucker. I'll place it in China, or on the ocean's floor, if I have to.

Now I'm gonna have to try that. And my parents got another one recently, so we could buy remote controls for them and have use them as battle-bots.

Every once in a while, though, it will get in a spot i can't get out of and just shut itself off. What a quitter.

lol. I'm looking at the box now and it says, "Made in China."

Damn.

Well, it is Chinese.
Doesn't have the same effect does it?

Not really. We can't really get mad at a few thousand Chinese 7-year-olds for not working at their full potential. Or we could Fed-Ex a few whips to the guys in charge of the sweatshops for "motivational purposes."

I did that once, after I found an aborted fetus sticking out of a plastic toy that came in my box of Frosties. I gift wrapped it as well

hahaha, I see you've found a good purpose for those useless fuckers.

Andy; battle, race, sounds all good.

& everything's made in China. it's still America's stupid lazy idea.

I wouldn't call it useless. It gets a lot done.

As of a few months ago, those were only made by one company and were sold for like, $3000 online. I went to Best Buy a month or so ago and saw them on sale for like $300. I want one! It would probably beat the shit out of my robosapien.
