Hitchhiking: Baby Rides Roomba Around House

November 16, 2017


This is a short video of an intrepid baby riding a Roomba around the house, aka a Roomba rodeo. That looks like fun. I assume she's trying to prove to her parents that she's almost ready for a Power Wheels. Plus a Roomba makes a totally suitable babysitter, right? When I was growing up Roombas didn't exist yet, so whenever my parents wanted to leave me at home alone they'd just sit me in a corner and place the upright vacuum in front of me and turn it on. 'The warden' they used to call him. I'm still trying to work through it.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Cyndi M, who informed me this might actually be a prototype for Roomba's new dusting attachment.

    Roomba rodeo, that's awesome. The Nickelback music, that's child abuse

    Does anyone actually have one of these? Do they work? Like do they clean up as good as a normal vacuum?
    I really want one, but I dont know anyone who has one and I just take that as a bad sign.

    Makes a lot of noise, not very efficient in the way it moves around BUT ultimately it gets the job done especially on reaching some difficult spots. You have to schedule it every day when you're out, though.

    And as a bonus, sometimes the Roomba will get lost and you will have to search it around.

    On the downside, you have to do some maintenance every few weeks or months... cleaning up the filters, the brushes and all.

    Teach them house cleaning while they're young.

    I'm impressed and appalled that the wheel motors are that strong.
