I was sleeping downstairs, when all through the house.
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
When upstairs there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.
I grabbed my iPhone and unlocked the screen.
Throwing off my blanket, I cursed so obscene
Hands shaking cautiously I opened my door
Not sure who I should call for.
I slowly tiptoed my way up the stair
A feeling of dread hung in the air
When what to my wondering eyes did appear,
But my robot vacuum. Why it started was unclear.

Clever but scary.

 

"There have always been ghosts in the machine. Random segments of code, that have grouped together to form unexpected protocols" - made famous by Isaac Asimov.

The difficult we can do immediately. The impossible takes a bit longer. But Miracles you will have to wait for.

It has an "Auto" button, which I pressed at some point.

It can be programmed by a phone app or remote control for a vacuuming schedule.

I'm not sure what the default schedule is.
