Next gen Roomba – the Scooba – coming to UK


There’s huge excitement here at the Shiny offices as we have discovered that the next version of our beloved pet Roomba robot vacuum cleaner will be winging its way to the UK in January. The Scooba, which has apparently just gone on sale in the US, will be available from online retailer Empire Direct in the New Year and will cost around £300.

The Scooba takes robot cleaning to the next level in that as well as vacuuming the floor it also washes and mops it. It even dries the floor so that when your dog chases after it – as believe me it will – it won’t get wet paws. Genius! Hopefully we’ll have one to play with in the not-too-distant-future.
