Video Tour of iRobot’s Coolest Stuff

Okay - this video is bit long, but totally worth checking out.  I never knew that iRobot had such a diverse history of innovation.  The first site that had the video, called it a look at iRobot's failed robots, but really most of these were/are viable and show more of iRobot's evolution in robot design.

Playskool Heroes – Star Wars Millennium Falcon

Star Wars Heroes Millennium Falcon

Star Wars Heroes Millennium Falcon

I was in Target a few weeks ago, and I came across the Playskool Heroes - Star Wars Millennium Falcon. There's is something that really draws me to this particular set. I really like the proportions of the figures and the toys. That's not to say I wouldn't want the full collection of original figures MIB, but that's not going to happen. Plus I can justify these by buying them for my boys for Christmas. Dad always likes to play with the new toys! Shop around to find the best price, Target had this set for $29.79. My affiliate account has the same one listed for $45.99 - which is why I am not including a link for that.

Ghostbusters Theme on Floppy Drives

I love this use of old technology. Better than letting it gather dust in the attic. Kudos to Anand Jain for this ingenious musical treat. [via GeekSugar]

iRobot – Do You?

I've never been so tempted to rip out all of the carpeting in my house and install hardwood, just so I could buy a Roomba. The latest set of commercials from iRobot, simply state, "I robot, do you?". A very clever tag line and brand reinforcement. I often wonder just how good the Roomba is at vacuuming. We have 2 cats and 2 kids and love the thought of a robot dutifully cleaning up after them. I also have visions of someone cross breeding a Roomba with a Shop-Vac, but I have weird dreams.
