Though these robots may be simple, they have their merits in applying some of the concepts discussed in Part I and in introducing some new ideas. For example, the Floor Sweeper covers room navigation, suggesting approaches that refer to ...

Lego robots! Mindstorms are sweeping the world and fans need to learn how to programme them Lego Mindstorms are a new generation of Lego Robots that can be manipulated using microcomputers, light and touch sensors, an infrared transmitter and CD-ROMs. Since Lego launched Lego Mindstorms in late 1998 sales have skyrocketed - with no sign of slowing down. Mindstorms have captured the imagination of adults and children alike, creating a subculture of Mindstorm enthusiasts around the world. The kits are now a staple part of engineering and computer science classes at many high profile Universities. Building Robots with Lego Mindstorms provides readers with a fundamental understanding of the geometry, electronics, engineering, and programming required to build your own robots. Mario and Giulio Ferrari are world-renowned experts in the field of Lego Mindstorms robotics, and in this book they share their unrivaled knowledge and expertise of robotics as well as provide a series of chapters detailing how to design and build the most exotic robots. Mario and Giulio also give detailed explanations of how to integrate Lego Mindstorms kits with other Lego programmable bricks such asScout and Cybermaster, as well as with non-robotic Lego Technics models.

    O-Cedar

    This is the most amazing thing ever…

    A couple of years ago I bought my sister the first generation of the Mint Automatic Hard Floor Cleaner for about $250.00. Several weeks ago I ran across the O’Cedar O’Duster at Wal-Mart for about $40.00 and made an impulse purchase. I was so impressed that I got my mom the O’Duster for Christmas. My review will not only comment on my experience with the O’Cedar product but also compare the O’Duster to the Mint.Both of these products are hard floor sweepers (note I said “sweeper”. There is no sucking action on either of them.). They use a disposable cloth product to sweep wood, tile, vinyl, etc. They will not work on carpets/rugs; nor, are they designed to wet-clean the floor. These do not take the place of mopping.First, a description of the O’Cedar O’Duster…There is a round plastic center housing that is about eight inches in diameter and a little over two inches tall. It is surrounded... 5/5 M. Nance - See all my reviews, December 30, 2013

    Great tool for those who are not expecting this to replace a human.

    Customer Video Review Length:: 0:31 MinsI vacuum regularly but because I have pets, I need to Swiffer every couple of days or else a layer of fur builds up on my hardwood floors. I decided to give this a try and it works well for me. The long cycle lasted 2.5 hours when I tested it. It's not a Roomba, so don't expect a vacuum cleaner. It's not the Mint, so don't expect anything advanced or smart from it. It's simply a moving Swiffer-type cleaner that grabs small items like dust and pet/human hair. Don't expect it to pick up anything bigger and your expectations will be realistic. This does not replace a vacuum cleaner or actual sweeping by a thinking and seeing person, but it's good to leave on to do its stuff in between cleanings to get some pet hair off the floor without effort. It will get stuck in some areas like elevated edges, rugs, wires, and tight corners, so it probably won't be that effective left on when leaving the home. A great tool for those who are not expecting this to turn this... 4/5 BrooklynNY (NY) - See all my reviews This review is from: O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner (Health and Beauty), June 28, 2014

    Helps to keep up with the dust on hardwood flooring

    0 4/5 Russ - Largo, Fl - See all my reviews This review is from: O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner (Health and Beauty) Carpets can help to contain dust. My new hardwood floors do not. I am constantly coughing at night from dust in my bedroom because the hard flooring allows dust and hair to float around. This inexpense unit really helps.Be certain to give your room (floor) a thorough dusting and cleaning along with all of the furniture. Now, you are ready to use this unit. Let it do it's thing every other day and you will really notice a reduction in dust and hair.Easy to use. rechargeable. I would recommend you try it.Note: Ideally, floor should be clear of cords, books and junk. Have it start in the middle of the room if possible. Close your door or it will leave and work on the tile outside your bedroom!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 27, 2013

    Bob, the third member of the house

    My wife recently bought a Bobsweep. It seems to working pretty good except doesn't go over a certain size threshold. And you pretty much have to move wires and thigs out of its way. If you are one to throw things on the floor, this may not be for you unless you really want to clean up your act and pick things up. It does clean well, gets under the bed and really dusts it out. That's worth a lot to us. The only problem I have found that is disturbing to me is that ever since my wife got BOB, she is talking to it like it is human. I can hear her saying in the next room..'come on Bob', 'Good job Bob', ...'Bob just a minute, let me move that wire' etc. On and on it goes. Its like a 3rd person moved into our house. To further complicate the issue, the company sent us a birth announcement on Bob, something like Bob Ourlastname, born October 4, 2014, 2 3/4 inches tall. Or something like that. Bob is born to us. Now I am wondering if the company offers psychological evaluations... 4/5 August 17 (Florida) - See all my reviews This review is from: Bobsweep Robotic Vacuum Cleaner, Sweeper, and Mop (Kitchen) My wife recently bought a Bobsweep.

    Not disappointed

    I am a first time robotic vacuum owner. Wasn’t sure whether I would hate it or love it but ended up loving it. It works very well in our house. We use it on 3 types of flooring: vinyl, rug, and tile. It is able to adjust to different floors easily. The only trouble we experienced was on our rug. It is beige with dark circles inside and sometimes it would stop working on the rug. We read online that it is due to edge sensors and that the dark circles somehow disrupt the sensors. The bobsweep comes with some stickers that easily resolve this problem.For people who are still not sure about robotic vacuumsPROS:-Bobsweep is easy to use. It comes with a manual, quick guide and there is a lot of info online-It is able to adjust to different floors easily. For dark carpets there is a simple solution to place stickers.-It has a docking station to which robot comes back on its own.-It is programmable to go to work on... 4/5 snoopykitten - See all my reviews This review is from: Bobsweep Robotic Vacuum Cleaner, Sweeper, and Mop (Kitchen) I am a first time robotic vacuum owner.

    High quality robot vacuum!

    0 5/5 Dibble - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bobsweep Robotic Vacuum Cleaner, Sweeper, and Mop (Kitchen) I bought this Bobsweep Robotic Vacuum Cleaner, Sweeper, and Mop because my husband and I recently bought a cat but we also have a lot of friends who have cat allergies. We decided to try this bobsweep to try and keep the pet dander levels in our house low. The UV sterilization feature is what really sold us on this particular item. So far, the vacuum has been working wonderfully. There have been absolutely no mechanical issues at all and the cleaning power of this vacuum has been incredible. It is a well-constructed product and I am expecting it to work well for us for a very very long time. The remote and the computer system on the bot are extremely user friendly. It's extremely easy to program. The bobsweep changes automatically when it goes from carpet to tile. Both our carpets and tile floors have honestly never been cleaner. I wish I had invested in this earlier! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 30, 2014
