Now we've got robotic mops too.

Floor-cleaning robots are some of the first electronic domestic servants in the world. We've had to make due with just the Roomba for a while now. While an AI vacuum is all well and good, it isn't useful in every situation. For hardwood floors or tile, you're going to want something that can wipe and scrub.

Enter the Mint Automatic Floor cleaner. This little guy is basically a Swiffer mop that drives itself around. It features the same sort of automatic mapping technology that allows the Roomba to do its work, and also looks roughly 23.7% more futuristic. After getting the OK from the Mint demo guy, I spilled some of my White Russian on the table and watched the bot go to town.

The Mint has options of microfiber cloth, wet swiffer cloth and dry swiffer cloth. The mop portion is magnetic, for easy removal and cleaning. The Mop will work for about 2 hours (750 square feet) on wet or 3 hours (1500-2000 square feet). You'll get more or less footage out of that, depending on how filthy your house is.

This little white robot is available now online at Amazon.com. It'll set you back $199. Which is cheaper than a maid.
