It's not quite the Jetsons, but close enough for me. Yesterday, I did a post about my generator, so I thought I'd finish off the week with another piece on home automation and that's my iRobot Verro 300 pool cleaning robot. This is definitely one of my other favorite pieces of gear. Drop it in, let it sink to the bottom and turn it on. Walk away and in about two hours your pool is cleaned! It's a robotic pool vacuum and it works GREAT! I was amazed the first time I saw it climb the walls. I've had mine for about two years now and this is one of those things that if it died today, I'd be ordering a new one immediately. It's easy to use and maintain and takes one more chore out of my life.
Here's a short video of it in action (though it's not very exciting to watch )
