May al­ready be fa­mil­iar with the Roomba ro­bot vac­uum thanks to its star­ring role in the Youtube videos of a cat dressed as a shark rid­ing a Roomba. ( Yes, you read that cor­rectly. Find this com­edy gold at mod­ern­­cat.)

Modern Cat - - The Scoop -

For the un­ac­quainted, this smart lit­tle ro­bot vac­uum nav­i­gates your home and picks up dirt and pet hair with­out you lift­ing a fin­ger! Hav­ing a cat gen­er­ally means bat­tling cat hair, so we were in­stantly sold on the ro­bot vac­uum con­cept and at this point we're self-pro­fessed su­per-fans of both the Roomba and the blasé in­ter­net cat that rounds his house on one. We re­cently tested out the new­est model, the Roomba 980, and with its new fea­tures and im­proved per­for­mance, it’s a dream come true for any­one who loves a clean home but isn’t so keen on clean­ing it them­selves. Yes, it will set you back $900 (other Roomba mod­els are less ex­pen­sive), but the Roomba 980 boasts tons of in­no­va­tive new fea­tures to make your life eas­ier. Case in point? App pow­ered vac­u­um­ing. Say you’re at work and, sur­prise, you find out your mom will be stop­ping by that evening. With the Roomba Home App, you can not only pre-sched­ule clean­ing, but also start an emer­gency vac­u­um­ing ses­sion when faced with un­ex­pected vis­i­tors— sim­ple as a tap on your phone! The vac­uum also fea­tures a HEPA-style fil­ter to trap dirt, dust, and al­ler­gens, keeping air clean. And un­like us, it works tire­lessly un­til the job is done, au­to­mat­i­cally recharg­ing it­self when nec­es­sary. It ad­justs to dif­fer­ent floor­ing with­out los­ing a beat: car­pet, hard­wood, tile—no prob­lem! And don’t worry about it fall­ing down the stairs; this clean­ing ma­chine has sen­sors and its in­tu­itive mem­ory keeps it work­ing on track to get the whole job done. Per­haps the best part, though, is that it tack­les those hard to reach spots. With its sleek de­sign, the Roomba 980 fits neatly un­der fur­ni­ture, beds, and so­fas, en­sur­ing ev­ery inch of your house is ul­tra­tidy and free of cat hair. We wouldn’t nec­es­sar­ily rec­om­mend let­ting your cat take this model out for a spin, but if she can’t re­sist a joyride, we highly sug­gest cap­tur­ing it on video!
