We may not have flying cars, but we do have robot vacuums.

When I was a kid I watched the Jetson’s.  They promised the future would have flying cars and robot vacuums doing your work.

Well we don’t yet have flying cars (although Uber is trying change that), but we do have robot vacuums.

We didn’t get a Roomba.  We got a Neato.  They are known for doing a really good job with dog hair.  We’ve got two dogs and tons of dog hair.  One little grouch and one happy big dog.


We got the Neato Botvac D5 Connected Navigating Robot Vacuum, Pet & Allergy, Works with Alexa


This vacuum is awesome.  We have it set to run every day at 1:30pm.  That way every day when we get home the floor downstairs is completely clean.  We have fake wood and a few rugs.  This thing keeps them looking good.

Every day after it is done, I get a notification on my phone saying she (we call her Rosie) is done.  And even better the sends me a map of where all she cleaned.


It takes a little over an hour.  When finished, the batter still has about 50% left so it could handle a much larger space.  But even if it couldn’t it would clean until the battery got low, recharge itself on the base, and continue cleaning.

I just empty the little tray every day when I get home and it is ready to go again the next day.
