It’s not often those keen on exercising control over machines before Skynet assumes control and want to save a cool $100 are satisfied with a single link, but today that changes. iRobot’s (not the Will Smith film) Roomba 960 is the second most powerful consumer robot vacuum available (only behind its big brother, the 980) and can actually be told what to do thanks to Alexa and Google Assitant integration, though commands are limited to the likes of “Roomba, clean,” “Roomba, charge,” and not “Roomba, you missed a spot.” It can also be controlled by an app on your phone when you’re away from home, and it’s smartly short (3.5 inches) enough to slip under most beds, chairs and couches.

The most respected name in robot vacuums rarely cuts prices on its high-end helpers, but today the asking price is at least slightly more reasonable — $100 shaved off the top, bringing it to $600. Consider, though, you’ll not only have a robot to boss around, it’ll also piss your cat off and clean the cat’s hair up, simultaneously.
