The Roomba is a disk-shaped vacuuming robot made by iRobot. The latest version uses a touch screen and is called the Roomba 780. Other versions include the original, 530, and 700. The wall-sensing technology is impressive, as is the cliff-sensing technology that stops the robot from falling down stairs and off ledges. "It's time to let the robots do the dirty work." Here’s a video.
