Remotely Control Your Robot Cleaner Using a Cell Phone

Too lazy to walk around your 600 square foot bachelor pad with a vacuum cleaner? Yeah, me too. I want to just sit back on my couch and watch some Simpsons and Family Guy. Apparently, SK Telecom is almost finished developing a robot cleaning solution that you control using a mobile phone.

The round cleaning robot navigates its way around the room according to your specifications, but you'll notice that there's a tiny camera mounted at the front. That's because the cleaning bot communicates with your cell phone, streaming its video feed to your mobile phone, and then you tell it where to go. Weird, yet awesome at the same time.

While the roaming robot is designed to help you clean the room, I figure it's only a matter of time before voyeurs come up with a whole different application for this technology.
