ralphie the roomba?

according to this ap story people are becoming to their roomba, a robotic vacuum cleaner. to quote the story:

they give them nicknames, worry when they signal for help and sometimes even treat them like a trusted pet.

a new study shows how deeply some roomba owners become attached to the robotic vacuums, and suggests there’s a measure of public readiness to accept robots in the house — even flawed ones.

my favorite part is not that some people are dressing their roombas, rather it is that some owners actually pre-clean their houses before releasing their roomba within the room, so as to keep their little, robotic, vacuum cleaning companion from having to work too hard.

if you would like to see more costumes you can find them at my room bud.
