I got a WALL-E for Christmas

Recommended Posts

aka Roomba 675.

I have been thoroughly entertained watching this do the job I spent time doing.

All solid surfaces, works well.

He hasn't gotten stuck yet.

I have not downloaded the app, it's a little too Cyberdyne Systems for me.

You have any dogs or kids that might leave a steamy pile on the floor when you're away for the day, or late at night? Mixed with a self-steering vacuum, that can make for some memorable results.

I saw that on the news and it was funny but a very nice credit to the police officers for their quick response and a good sense of humor when they realized who the intruder was...…….:up:

We got our son and his wife one. I went over to day to visit and the thing works well, however their Shepherd does not like it one bit. Funny to watch a 80 pound dog get away from it.

We have the Irobot 690 and the darn thing gets stuck sometimes in the worst places-in fact when installing the app on your phone it makes you pick a name for it-we call it DUMAS-pronounced exactly like it looks.

We can be at a store and I will get a text from DUMAS-I am stuck come help!!

I have to make a confession.

The afternoon after my post, I was in the basement, hear what sounds like the front door closing.

No barking dog, could be my son or wife home from work hours early. Not likely and no shout down the stairs of announcement.

 The barkless dog could be due to being deaf and fast asleep...

"Hello?" I say, no response.

Clear my garment, get a proper grip and start up the stairs.

Halfway up, someone is banging around.

At three quarters, I can hear either my dish washer or washing machine running.

Now I'm confused.

Weak hand out to fend off as I cut the corner, gun still in holster.

And there is WALL-E, navigating around the table and chairs, brushing and sucking away, sounding much like another appliance.

First thought, "should I post this on TGO?"

Could this be a Tactics and Training topic? "Recognize and neutralize the threat of automatic vacuums."

So you are saying that now I could ride your robot vacume around and surprise you unaware...

OMG, LOLOLOLOL.

Note: I did not draw even when cutting the corner because I assumed any intruder who would start a load of dishes or clothes would be less-than-lethal.

Maybe that was a ploy to draw you out and put you off kilter during the ambush...

I would be a very inventive, but probably unsuccessful intruder..
