As Seen on TV: RoboMaid/RoboMop may have a better future as a toy


The product:

RoboMaid aka RoboMop
The price: $7.49, plus $9.40 for shipping and handling, so the price really is $16.89
The claims: Dusts your floors for you so you don't have to
The Buy-o-meter rating: 2 on a scale of 5 as a cleaner; 4 out of 5 as a toy

With the iRobot Roomba becoming so popular for those who want things clean with minimal participation from themselves, it seems natural the As Seen on TV world would counter with its own product. Enter RoboMaid, now sold as RoboMop outside the U.S.
