iRobot - Build your own for the home?



February 12, 2009 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: IRBT



As we all know The Motley Fool writers are fond of iRobot (IRBT). I think this company has it within itself to be successful with the mass market. I can see that success coming from the development of an R2-D2 type robot for the home. I want to know from the members of the Motley Fool community what features it should have, criteria you think it should meet. I also want to know what you would be willing to pay for such a machine. Maybe if they catch wind of what we want they might just seek out our dollars.
