This self-guided vacuum works on wood, tile, and carpet to suction up dirt, dust, pet hair, and scraps, with a battery time of 75 minutes — plus, when it runs out of batteries, it'll takes itself to the charger to recharge before resuming its task. You can even put it on a cleaning schedule so it just kicks to life without you doing anything.
Price: $225.99 (originally $669; available in two colors)
Promising review: "I have two dogs who shed. A lot. We run our Bob every other day and the amount of dog hair all over the floor has decreased dramatically. Sometimes Bob appears to be a little confused and it seems like he is never going to make it to the other side of the room, however, if you just let him go, he gets all of the spots he is supposed to. He has only gotten caught up a few times, but if we are sitting on the couch, it is usually easy enough to pull the remote control out and redirect him. I loved the way he arrived, complete with a birth announcement. He really is a part of our family, now that the dogs have finally gotten used to the weird round thing that makes noise and moves all by itself." —Alana
