I am planning to modify Roombie — that’s the name of our Roomba vacuuming robot.
I’m not a super geek who mods all my gadgets. But this is necessary.
Roombie bashes into furniture and the little factory bumper doesn’t do much cushioning.
I am not exaggerating, Roombie pushes the dining chairs several inches across the room and has bumped one of my MCM chairs leaving a mark — unacceptable.
I am now on the hunt for some very thin high density foam so as not to interfere with the charging mechanism.
Now before you think I am nuts and am only imagining this problem (as has been suggested) someone also has identified this issue and is selling Roomba bumpers on Ebay.
I may not be a super geek but I am still too much a geek to order someone else’s foam and glue combo.
