5 robots you can buy right now

We're still in the early days of the robot era, but there are a few you can own right now.

iRobot Roomba

The Roomba is the most famous consumer robot.

The giant puck will cruise around your house and vacuum any unobstructed surface it can find before returning home to its charging dock. But Roomba maker iRobot (IRBT) isn't just about carpets. The company also sells bots that will mop your floors, scrub your tile, and clean your gutters.
