When robots take over the world, who will you have on your side? The revolution is upon us and there are plenty of robots taking over right now—well, taking over some of your mundane cleaning chores.
Of course, sloth can be a bit expensive. However, Woot is making the investment a little lighter today, by discounting the iRobot Roomba 581. Right now, the website has the robotic vacuum listed for just $279.99, which is $70 off the list price. That’s a pretty fair price for your own minion!
As part of the iRobot family, the Roomba 581 offers easy, daily cleaning, all without having to lift a finger. (OK, you need the one finger to turn it on.) It’s a little worker bee, too, promising to get into some of those hard-to-reach areas. It has its own Wireless Command Center, so you can actually steer the vacuum into the dirtiest spots. It also comes with three Virtual Wall Lighthouses, which means that you can keep Roomba from escaping into other rooms. Last, but certainly not least, you don’t even have to be around for Roomba to want to work; it offers scheduling that allows you to clean at preset times.
Just remember that this discount does not including free shipping, so you’ll need to factor in the extra $5 for this purchase. It’s still a good deal—but one that’s going to be gone very soon. Woot deals are just one day, so this offer will be gone at the end of the day today (Monday, October 29, 2012) or whenever Woot runs out of stock!
