Your lawn is a money pit that requires ungodly amounts of water and labour to keep it green and trim. We've known for sometime that iRobot, the Roomba company, has been on a mission to put your landscaper out of a job with a robot. Thanks to a trademark filing reported by Robotics Trends, there's a pretty good chance this lawn chewing beast will be called... "Terra"?
iRobot's Roomba vacuum cleaners are about the closest thing you can get to having a real Star Wars droid at home. In fact, many Roomba owners are happy to pretend their robovac is just a shorter version of R2-D2 while it works away, and this decal set will help make that even more believable.
You want a clean home? Sure, who doesn't. Too lazy to clean it yourself? Absolutely. iRobot's Roomba 880 — the latest in its series of robot vacuum cleaners — was made for you. It's the Rolls-Royce of highly motivated cleaning appliances, and it can take care of some serious dinge. Although it'll cost you some serious cash.
If the likes of Euro Truck Simulator and Farming Simulator can take the world by (extremely slow) storm, then surely there's a place for the poor old robot vacuum cleaner?

To ensure the cooling and ventilation systems in the company's data centres are running at peak efficiency, IBM now employs autonomous temperature-monitoring robots built on the iRobot Create platform to hunt down problematic areas. Fitted with a 2m tall pole laden with temperature and other sensors, the robots wander collect data on temperature and humidity that can later be mapped in 3D to determine cold spots where cooling is being wasted, or hot spots where ventilation needs to be improved.
