We played beer pong with robot vacuumsWatch our CNET Home and Appliances team put a new twist on the popular frat game.
[SOUND] It's a house button. Hey guys. We are about to play robot vacuum beer pong. This isn't our idea, this is a very popular video that's been going viral this week, that we saw. And, we've got plenty of robot vacuums around, so we wanted to give it a try. So here we are, we've got two teams. On this table here we have a Roomba, and on that table there we have a Neato. So it's team Roomba versus team Neato. And it's beer pong, only you have to hit the moving targets. Neato doesn't seem to be moving with much conviction. The laser sensors. It's not because the rubric for the cans. It keeps on getting stuck. How did we arrive at this arrangement of cups? Yeah, I think magic and science. Yeah, with the neo we had to try to not block the sensor so it would actually move. And then, with the Roomba, we got to use like a traditional beer pong formation. [NOISE] Rich. [NOISE] Outside.
