Roomba 530 and 560
On Wednesday, iRobot plans to release a new generation of vacuuming robots to the public.
CNET News.com got a chance to test out iRobot's new Roomba 500 series ahead of time and get a private demonstration with iRobot CEO Colin Angle and Josh Preneta, the Roomba 500 series product manager.
The Roomba 530 (left) for $300 allows for two virtual walls to restrict robot room access and can clean about three rooms per charge.
The Roomba 560 (right) for $350 offers routine scheduling, a new method of timed movement control between rooms, and can clean about four rooms per charge.
