Find out what iRobot's Wi-Fi-enabled Roomba can do.
You can't tell by looking at it, but iRobot's $900 Roomba 980 has a new feature that's a first for the automated vacuum brand.
The Roomba 980 is app-enabled.
Just download the iRobot Home app on your Android or iOS device and follow the instructions to connect this clever bot to your local Wi-Fi network.
The Roomba 980 comes with all of the traditional fixin's, too, but they might look a little different.
Take iRobot's Virtual Wall devices.
They are much smaller than past versions and thankfully use AA batteries (rather than the massive ones used before).
Underneath, everything is pretty much the same as before.
You'll see the same rotating side brush.
You'll also see the same double brushes.
iRobot also outfitted the Roomba 980 with a camera and more sensors for promises of improved overall cleaning, although it didn't outperform the Roomba 880 we tested in 2013.
