iRobot Applies for Patent
iRobot applied for a patent in November of 2008 that, if they decided to actually make it, would give their Roomba a new look. The company says in its application, "The robot has a rectangular front form factor that facilitates cleaning along wall edges or in corners." Whether or not it comes to fruition remains to be seen. Maybe they should reverse the design, the way real street-cleaning vehicles are constructed.
