    When will iRobot be fairly valued?

    The only way for iRobot to lose the valuation metric of a vacuum cleaner manufacture is for Mr. Angle to realize these simple truths:
    “We are social beings, and we do develop social types of relationships with lots of things,” “Think about the GPS in your car, you talk to it and it talks to you.” Dr. Rogers noted that people developed connections with their Roomba, the vacuum robot, by giving the machines names and buying costumes for them. “This isn’t a bad thing, it’s just what we do,”
    In fact, Mr. Osborn’s laboratory at Carnegie Mellon has designed a robot to work with therapists and people with autism. The machine can develop a personality and blinks and giggles as people interact with it. “Those we tested it with love it and hugged it,” he said. “You begin to think of it as something that is more than a machine with a computer.”
