Cleaning sucks, I hate it with a passion and avoid it whenever possible – but I might be more inclined to keep my mess off the floor if I had a team of robotic puppies automatically vacuuming my floors each day. The Puppy Robotic consists of four robot puppies and a mother dog base station. When they are in cleaning mode, the little dogs run around your house picking up dust. When they are full they return to the mother dog to unload and charge.
Seriously, Roombas are cool and everything but these little robots look like they would squeeze into tighter spaces and perhaps handle corners a little better. The Puppy Robotic is, however, just a concept – and the kitsch factor, the economy, and the complexities and costs involved in turning this into a real product will probably mean that it stays that way.
