Get to Know Your Fukitorimushi

Fukitorimushi ("wipe-up bug") takes the Roomba to an entirely new level. The autonomous cleaner moves like an inchworm and drags its nonocloth belly around until it finds a dirty spot. Then it emits a red light and uses an extra effort to clean it. What makes this service bot special, at least in its creator's eyes, it that one grows fond of it after a while and that having to change the cover occasionally makes it more of a pet.
