There are many who fear robots will take all our jobs. However one recent report proves that they have their own flaws.
A Roomba, which is an autonomous robotic vacuum, managed to escape from a home in Tokyo. The single Roomba was seen and photographed near the city’s Kanda station cruising the streets at about 3 miles per hour.
While it remains unknown who the Roomba belongs to or if they’ve yet received it back, it is clear the vacuum has a mind of its own. No one knows how the Roomba made it outdoors, but the streets are reported to be nice and clean now.
Designed like a thick disc, Roomba is made by iRobot. The device can automatically adapt to its home environment. Its manufacturer notes “With the touch of a button, Roomba collects dirt, pet hair and other debris from all areas of the floor, including under and around furniture and along wall edges.”
So what do you say? Would you want Roomba to clean your neighborhoods streets as well?
