Data collected by vacuum robot about your home may soon be sold


One word: CREEPY.

Do you have a Roomba? If so, you might not be aware of what you have potentially signed up for in the privacy agreement.

According to the New York Times:

High-end models of Roomba, iRobot’s robotic vacuum, collect data as they clean, identifying the locations of your walls and furniture. This helps them avoid crashing into your couch, but it also creates a map of your home that iRobot is considering selling to Amazon, Apple or Google.

Seriously? Buried in the jargon that no one bothers to read, Roomba users unknowingly signed away rights for their homes to be mapped by this machine? Seems so... well... NOT RIGHT.
