iRobot announces Create, the programmable home robot

Essentially a round framework on wheels, the iRobot Create has 32 sensors and a bunch of ports where you could attach anything from a webcam to watch your baby to articulated arms that could be programmed to fetch the morning paper and bring it, plus your slippers, to your bedside in the morning - then take the paper to the recycling bin when you're done with it, load up the glass in the one place and the compost in the other, and generally take care of a hundred minor lifestyle enhancement things at the incredibly modest price of $129 by itself, plus $60 for the command module.  The $229 starter kit includes the robot, module and battery, which seems to be the whole shot.  [GT]
