When the Roomba first hit the market, everyone was like “Hey, now THIS is a gimmick I can buy into!” Roomba isn’t the only robovac on the market anymore though. In fact, quite a crowd has gathered.
These photos compare three of the most popular robotic vacuums on the market, showing their paths through the power of long exposure photography.

Check out the others after the jump.
