Roomba by the Numbers - 50+ Countries and 2.1 Billion Pounds of Dirt

There aren't a lot of products out there that I heartily endorse - but I do love my Roomba, so I just had to share this rather random infographic (via Daily Infographic) about the Roomba. I had no idea that Roombas have made the equivalent of 28 trips to the sun and back while cleaning people's floors for them.

In fact, in the consumerist spirit of Cyber Monday, I'll share the few endorsements I have for specific products that have improved my quality of live dramatically more than I thought they would and are all completely worth the money:
  1. Roombas. There are few things more awesome than watching a robot vacuum your floors for you.
  2. Amazon Prime. I hate hate HATE shopping. Therefore, I buy almost everything that is non-perishable from the Internet, so free two-day shipping on anything my household needs or my heart desires is an unbeatable value.
  3. Sodastream water carbonator. I developed a taste for fizzy water during my many years in Europe, and this a water carbonator is definitely the best, easiest, and cheapest way to have fizzy water here in the US.
  4. Delonghi EC155 espresso machine - makes great coffee, considering the price of the machine. To get better coffee, you'll have to spend 10x as much on an espresso machine.
That's it for my Cyber Monday endorsements - if you go buy those things, I promise you won't regret it.

Anyway, now for the main event - an infographic telling you more than you ever wanted to know about how much Roombas have cleaned up this dirty world of ours:


  1. I think in today's busy life, the vacuum cleaner is a popular cleaning tool. best vacuumsclean your home quickly and conveniently. I often use a vacuum cleaner to clean the house. I am planning on using a robot vacuum to replace the vacuum cleaner that I am using because it is old.
