Obviously by the date in that url I'm super late to this party, but wow, 
this XV-11 guy is so much smarter than the roomba!  And it's got a 
LIDAR!  The video in that article is a must watch, you can see the XV-11 
methodically scan the room and then follow this totally optimized course 
to vacuum it without bumping into anything or cover many areas more than 
once.  Astonishing for those of us used to the cute bumbling of the 
roomba.  Clearly our robot underlords are getting more methodical.  Can 
the robot uprising be far off now?
