iRobot Announces the Dirt Dog, a Roomba For Your Workshop

iRobot, the makers of the Roomba, announced the iRobot Dirt Dog, a Roomba-like robot that's designed to clean up your workshop. The robot is more rugged than the Roomba, and can pick up small nails, dirt, sawdust and other semi-large objects that the normal Roomba wouldn't be able to handle.

The Dirt Dog's bagless debris bin is 40% larger than the Roomba's, and has two bristle brushes that spin at 1,000RPM which suck up dirt and debris so you don't step on a nail, get infected, die and leave your wife to marry your buddy Dan.

The Dirt Dog will be available on the iRobot website starting September 15 for $129.99.
