Like many, I leave the cleaning chores for a tomorrow that never comes. So the idea to automate cleaning with little human supervision had always intrigued my imagination. 

Then I came across the iRobot Roomba 695, an intelligent vacuum cleaner developed by roboticist experts at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The Roomba 695 has a lightweight, no-frills disc design with three buttons on the top surface, and a suction hose, cleaning brushes and other tools on the bottom. While the front of the robot’s circumference hosts sensors, the back features a removable dust and garbage storage bin.
