iRobot Scooba Unboxing. Robot Mop!

According to the folks at iRobot themselves, it “Preps, washes, scrubs and squeegees sealed hardwood, tile and linoleum floors. It cleans beneath cabinet edges, tables, chairs and other hard-to-reach places while automatically avoiding rugs, carpets and stairs.”

While it seems too good to be true, it’s real!  It doesn’t come from a land of unicorns, rainbows and dancing fairies but rather it’s available at your local hardware store!

This unit is an intermediate floor washer, cleaning up to 500 square feet (1-3 rooms) per battery charge.  A full tank washes up to 250 square feet before requiring refilling and allows you to set up a virtual wall to prevent a certain “more delicate” area from being “invaded”.

In this video, Jon Rettinger will be unboxing the device and giving you his initial impressions.

What do you think?  Is it worth the money?  Sound off in the comments below!

Update: Our very own Jon Rettinger recently got his hands on one of these bad boys! Check out his iRobot Scooba unboxing (230 edition).
