iRobot Scooba 450
The Scooba works much like its vacuuming counterpart, except it uses a series of brushes and a cleaning solution to all but eliminate the chore of mopping. The device works on tile, vinyl, or sealed hardwood floors and claims to vanquish up to 97 percent of household bacteria through a multipass, three-stage process: sweep and presoak; scrub and squeegee/vacuum, and squeegee/finish.
