LG's Robot Vacuum Is Here To Challenge Roomba for the Throne

If you're into the whole autonomous vacuuming thing (this guy is), Roomba's mastered the art to the point that it's pretty much unnecessary to look elsewhere for your cleaning needs. But lo and behold, LG has popped up on the scene with their own robot vacuum.

I'm not saying a little competition is a bad thing, but if LG is gonna go up against the mighty iRobot, their product better be GOOD at sucking crumbs up. And when the most touted feature about the damn thing is a self-diagnostic feature, well, I just don't know about that. But it's not like it matters, because this thing probably won't see the light of day outside Korea. [Akihabara News via UberGizmo]
