7 Awesome Robots You Can Buy Right Now To Make Your Life Easier

Lots of housework tasks are tiring, repetitive, and boring. Why send a human to do a robot’s work?

As they can’t eat, sleep, or even feel, there are a number of robot slaves readily available for purchase that are more than happy to help you tackle those mind-numbing chores.

It’s a concept probably best illustrated by the Roomba, the famous circular robot that vacuums your house for you with the touch of a button.

We’re still nowhere near the capabilities of a Jetsons-style Rosie housebot, but we’re well on our way.

The Roomba 880 will vacuum your house, but it's a little pricey.

We gave this handy vacuum-bot a full review you can read here. The short version of the story: we loved it. It will get your house in ship shape while you take a nap. The only hiccup is in the price tag, which will sting for many.

Price: $700

For a more affordable robot vacuum, check out the Neato XV-21.

The Neato is a Roomba-like robot that's more than up to the task of annihilating pet hair, dust, and whatever other detritus winds up on your floor. We wrote up a full review on it here. Press its button and you're done vacuuming.

Don't need to vacuum? The Scooba will wash your floor instead.
