iRobot LoojOne day, robots will rule the world and we’ll all be toast (unless Arnold is reincarnated as a Leatherman). But until then, we’ll happily employ them to do our menial bidding, like cleaning our gutters.

While iRobot’s Roomba vacuum cleaner and Scuba floor washer steal all the attention in the consumer space, its the adorably named Looj that will get any geek’s heart racing (even if it’s not really a robot).

Just drop the Looj in your gutter and watch it go. The Looj’s handle doubles as a control for driving the unit back and forth (the body detaches from the handle but remains connected by a 75-foot cable).

iRobot says the 500 RPM 3-stage auger is good enough to blast any debris out of your gutters, as long as gutter is at least 3-1/4″ wide and 2-1/4″ tall from below the gutter straps. Otherwise it won’t fit, and the Looj will convert into the Frooba, an evil robot bent on frustrating you.

Some other specs, because you’re a geek and want to know these things: it takes 15 hours to charge and one charge lasts 30-45 minutes, which is good for about 250 linear feet of gutter cleaning. The downside: iRobot chose to go with a charging method straight out of the ’80s, which requires you to stop the charging ater 15 hours, there’s no automatic cut-off. Blimey!

Looj 120 (with belt-clip) costs $99.99, while Look 130 (with holster) will set you back $129.99. There’s also a 150 model, that includes an extra battery and auger, but no one seems to be selling it yet.
