The iRobot Scooba is designed to vacuum, scrub and dry hard floors automatically. iRobot partnered with The CloroxCompany to develop a cleaning solution for the Scooba floor washer.
Unlike a conventional mop and bucket, the robot only uses fresh water and cleaning solution from a clean tank, so Scooba never spreads dirty water on the floor. Scooba cleans wet spills in addition to dirt and grime, and it is safe for use on all sealed hard floor surfaces, including wood and tile.
iRobot has a video and flash demo on their site explaining how the new robot mops floors.
iRobot states that only a limited number of iRobot Scooba floor washing robots will be on sale for this holiday season. Large distribution is to start in 2006.
I really would like to try the iRobot Scooba on my kitchen floor. I have high hopes that it will work, because the floor iRobot shows in the video demo looks exactly like mine.
The iRobot Roomba floorvac robot sold since 2002 1.2 million times.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
