IntelliVac RV01: Mediocre Robotic Vacuum
“the little red vacuum that could not”
$59.99 + $5 Shipping and Handling

With Lentek’s Intellivac robotic vacuum, vacuuming happens without human supervision–an advantage that can help chores go double-time. When turned on, it runs in a series of patterns across the floor: a random pattern, a spiral pattern, a perimeter pattern, and a Z-type pattern like the one an ox would make plowing a field. (thats what the manufacturer says, but Woot wonders about the last time anyone actually saw an ox plowing a field…)

Although it is designed for bare floors and low carpets, woot reads that it sucks on carpet. And we don’t mean that in a good way. Woot recommends buying this to clean your tile, hardwood, slate and linoleum floors. You can run it on carpet, just don’t expect it to do much of anything except move around like an ox…or you can chase your cat with it thanks to the handy remote control.

Designed with a quiet motor, this easy-to-use robotic floorvac includes an array of convenient features. The unit vacuums and sweeps with two spinning edge-cleaning brushes that handle carpet, plus disposable cleaning cloths that pick up dirt, dust, and pet hair from hard-surface floors. Engineered to clean around furniture and along walls, the unit can be set to run for 20 to 60 minutes, a helpful option that means you can set it running and leave the house. The machine also features built-in sensors to keep it from falling off of stairs or getting stuck under couches.

Woot also includes the venerable Samsonite Motion Sensor Alarm SAP-707 with remote control, so one need not worry about leaving your Mediocre vacuum sitting out.

here’s a good marketing idea for woot: since so many of the “bargain hunters” have bought notebooks recently, why don’t we sell notebook accessories!
