After its go around my apartment, the i7+ is “still learning.” It’s fitting sentiment for the new Roomba, which iRobot is positioning as much as a platform as a robotic vacuum.
With a couple of cleans, the new Roomba gets to know the layout of your apartment, building a “Smart Map” in the process.
iRobot claims such features will have added usefulness as time goes by, including the long-promised ability to serve as a sort of connective tissue for a user’s smart home.
That means, after a couple of cleans, you’ll be able to designate a bedroom accordingly and tell the Roomba to go clean the bedroom.
That, of course, doesn’t comport with iRobot’s ultimate goal of keeping the robot out of sight.
Even with the new model, I still find myself doing this.
