    KBZ First to Offer iRobot Ava™ 500 Video Collaboration Robot with Cisco TelePresence

    see the article under CSCO........there will be competition in the space and it is still early, but it is a big, developing market. I wouldn't be surprised if a big company made a play for IRBT.....GLTA

      Apple would be perfect. Not only does the marketing/branding already pair with Apples branding (iPad iPod iPhone, iRobot) Apple is in need of a next generation tech to add their touch too.

      IRobot already includes an Ipad with their telepresence lines. Its a match made in heaven, but Apple would have to overpay heavily, thanks to 200+ patents

      • If Apple put their name on these Robotic product lines, growth would be explosive. Millions of people would instantly buy one just because they buy everything Apple puts their name on.

        iRobot should have an App that tells you when your floor cleaning robots need to be emptied, serviced, etc. I can see major Iphone/Ipad integration as robots grow and require monitoring and maintenance to some degree.

        Consumer robot have a bright future
