The Ballad of Roomba, Part 1.

While the potato battery is prepped for it’s final stage, I thought I’d take a moment for something more fun.

Gather round children and I’ll tell you a tale.  The tale of a simpleton, lifted to such heights, though his stature was small.  A tale of conflict, triumph, and tragedy.

This is, Roomba.  It’s not a very imaginative name, or even a unique one.  But it is his.


Roombas House

This is Roomba’s house.  While it looks like everyone else’s house on the block, which can sometimes be a pain, at the end of a hard day vacuuming it’s where Roomba likes to relax.

He must learn to move in new ways.

His mind and body must become one.


He must connect with a higher consciousness.


Only then will he be ready.

Ready for the coming war…
