Tumblr Thread: Dog Figures Out How to Herd Lawn Roomba

Give a sheepdog something to herd and by god it will herd that thing. In this case it was a little lawn care robot. That is a smart dog. Under the right circumstances, pets find ways to do creepily intelligent things. And there's something about roombas that make them seem more than just a mindless robot. For example, here Tumblr explores human nature with the concept of a "knife roomba."

So, this girl decided to put together a hilarious sketch of what it would look like if she fell in love with her Roomba. Isolation can do some funny things to the mind. Whatever it's doing, it inspired this bit of comedy gold.

If we woke up to this we'd probably be convinced that the house was haunted. So it's a good thing there was cameras running to capture the magic. We understand that a stack of Roombas is a trivial thing, but seriously, what are the odds?

Those Roomba burglaries are no joke, man! Gotta keep the streets clean. We're just grateful that the body cam footage of the police showing up with a K-9 unit to apprehend a Roomba intruder, has surfaced. A beautiful thing really. We have the viral Twitter thread documenting the hilarious false alarm right here.

Beware of the Roomba.

A woman in South Korea recently found herself battling one of the vacuum robots after it tried to eat her hair instead of cleaning the room.

From the report:

On the day of the accident, she turned on her robot vacuum as usual, and laid down flat on the floor to rest, leaving the robot to do its job. The robot vacuum came around her relaxing on the floor, and suddenly sucked her hair into its nozzle. The vacuum stopped running one to two minutes after the sudden hair intake.



It’s unclear why she would lay down on the floor next to the thing in the first place and not expect to have this happen.

She suffered only minor injuries and the emergency responders said the vacuum sensed her hair and thought it was dust.

Regardless, this doesn’t bode well for Japan’s new all-robot hotel.

Ok the secret is mostly about getting a robot to do your vacuuming, AND having your child embrace our future robot overlords.
