These robot vacuums are so useless and, frankly, annoying. If you know any dimwitted middle-aged soccer moms or elderly grandmas you've probably already been treated to the "watch my robot, isn't it amazing?" routine. Isn't it sickening? Not only are these devices useless for the tiny amount of manual work they alleviate, but they're also extremely expensive for something that's going to be outdated in a year. A big fad, that's what they are, and it's not surprising to see wide-eyed massdrop shopaholics gobbling them up like crazy. "Neato!" is what their hipster friends are gonna be saying when they get the inevitable routine.
