iRobot Looj

Not as charmingly named as the Roomba, Looj is iRobot's gutter cleaning robot.  Like the robot vacuum cleaner, I think this is another perfect application for technology. I say this as a man with a gutter problem to solve. 

The Looj comes with a battery-powered remote (2 x AAA), a 7.2V NiCad battery pack (very robust), with wall charger, and a sweeper / "auger" assembly. 

All wear items are replaceable. 

Reportedly very good at cleaning gutters.

Looj is NOT autonomous.  Must be controlled by a human with the remote.  As I write this, I am charging the batteries.  Performance report to follow.
