iRobot getting into the game...
Well, it looks like iRobot is getting into the robot building arena - a recent announcement from this year's CES shows that iRobot will be releasing a new robot called Create, similar in shape to the iRoomba but with the vacuum attachments (brushes and fluid container) removed. Users will be able to connect devices like cameras and robotic arms - some purchasable from iRobot and others probably home-brew.
Not much more news yet, and I post this only because I think we all see that the home robotics field is growing fast and everyone wants to get in... maybe if enough of us request it, they'll include BlueTooth so our NXT bots can interact with the iRobot device.
