Looj

Ryan’s already confessed his love and fear of the iRobot Roomba. While it’s not exactly new, I think I may have to get another wee robot, the Looj.

What does it do? It cleans gutters. That’s it. But having just finished my first quick gutter-cleaning adventure I can say that I see the appeal. Gutter cleaning isn’t terribly difficult, just woefully inconvenient and tedious. But if I had a little robot scurrying in the gutter, cleaning stuff out for me? That could be a lot better.

I’ve got to say that while I expected robots to do things like cook meals and overrun our society, I didn’t expect them to take care of menial household tasks. But now that they are, I’ve got to say that they’re pretty swell.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
