Robot Armageddon would certainly
be world changing!
It all looks innocent enough right? It cleans your floors so you don't have to. That's the pitch but what is it really doing? Ever since robots got their own cloud network and someone invented the internet of things you can bet there's more going on than you know about.
Here's a device that has intimate knowledge of the layout of your house, including whatever you're hiding under the bed!
It's number one priority task is cleaning your whole house thoroughly. You know that's a very desirable skill to have when it's about to turn your home into a crime scene.
What I want to know is why does a cleaning device need to monitor its environment sixty times per second using multiple sensors? I'm pretty sure it's probably monitoring your location at all times ready for some drone with lasers attached to take you out.
...and why does it have both optical and acoustical sensors? It's not just watching but listening to you as well.
The fact that the Roomba is totally responsible for keeping its self always charged means it can monitor you 24/7 without you having to do anything.
With millions sold worldwide not only has the invasion started but if you've bought one, you've paid it's traveling expenses to get to your home!
Let's also not forget that iRobot builds robots for the military too.
If all that wasn't enough to convince you that Roombas are a real threat, take note that just like many evil geniuses before them Roomba's are befriending cats because... well that's just what all evil geniuses have at their side. Don't believe me then watch the playlist of Roombas and cats below.
