iRobot makes tactical reconnaissance robots for the US military. What’d they do with all that experience? They made a robot that cleans your gutters. God bless an unprecedented military spending spree!
This autonomous robotic gutter cleaner ($300) comes by way of Hammacher Schlemmer, the same people who brought you the hot tub boat. It can clean a thirty foot section of gutter in five minutes, throwing detritus over the edge. Oh, and it’s remote controlled. Who says men don’t get toys?
