Amazon to aquire iRobot, creators of the Roomba robot vacuum

Amazon has announced its intention to buy iRobot for an all-cash price of $1.7 billion. The home robotics company is best known for its line of Roomba robot vacuums for the home, however, the company has been venturing into other home robot categories recently, such as gutter and pool cleaning robots, floor mopping robots, and robotic lawn mowers. Amazon recently launched its own home robot, Astro, so the future of Amazon home robots may soon start to accelerate once this acquisition is complete. At the very least, you can probably expect to see some pretty good deals on Roomba vacuums next Prime Day.
