Mopping Robot From Roomba Makers iRobot

Scooba via Slashdot

Announced today, the guys who make the Roomba introduced Scooba, a mopping version of their robot. Looks very cool, although it's using a "specially formulated" version of floor cleaner -- can anyone say Gillette's Rule Of Marketing?

Despite that, the idea of a mopping robot is wonderful -- who doesn't want to have someone or something that can do the mopping for you? I'd like one that does *both* vacuuming and mopping, though. In order to do both now, you'd have to buy a Roomba and a Scooba; unless you have a larger place or a place with a lot of hardwood floors, that's overkill.
