<<<I've talked to several friends who I recommended the product to because they have pets, and they just don't get that the roomba would help them. They think their stand-up vacuums are better because they're used to them.>>>

Your friends also may well be harboring some fear that the Roomba might injure their pets.


As a pet owner and lover of robots, the reason I was very slow to adopt the Roomba was not for fear of my critters. We know the furballs will get out of the way of the motors. I didn't think it could handle all the fur.

This is coming from a woman that just spent the weekend coordinating a robotics competition, and likely will have another one next weekend, and definitely has another one in April.
