Speaking as a man who once gave his wife a Roomba for her birthday, something I doubt she will ever foorget, Litter-Robot, the automatic self-cleaning cat litter box that really works, looks worth investimagatin’ if pricey. (Via, um, Tom? I fergit)

(The Roomba has a bum leg at the moment; I was able to diagnose it easily enough but so far the veterinary care instructions, largely involving the use of compressed air, have failed.)

  1. The cat currently in residence at KJ Southwest IN has an electronic litterbox, which I unwittingly witnessed. It made a horrible wheezing sound as it (raked? sifted? sorted?) the box, but it seems to work OK. Me, I thought the mice in the garage had started a combustible engine.

  2. The drive belt for one of the wheels on my Roomba v1 broke a while ago, causing it to spin around in circles. I was able to replace the belt fairly easily with a same-sized rubber washer from the plumbing section of Lowes. Taking everything apart and putting it back together again was a bit of excitement, but compared to some other electronic toys, they really do make the Roomba easy to hack on. I approve.
