I love robot vacuums, and have two currently (a roomba and a Metapo CleanMate), they are pretty similar in that they bump around the house and eventually clean most of the rooms floor. Well it looks like a new competitor is about to enter the space (in Feb 2010). The Neato XV-11 robot vacuum is a bit different in that it has a room positioning system with lasers. The lasers help map the room an avoid obstacles. Expect to pay around $400 for the Neato XV-11. More pictures and video after the break.
