Last November Elon Musk repeated his warning that the rise of robots and Artificial Intelligence (AI) could mean the end of humankind, saying that it could be "fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization."  Pretty scary coming from the mind behind PayPal, Tesla electric cars, and SpaceX.  Nevertheless, faced with a busy schedule and mounting dust bunnies I decided to risk annihilation by trying out a robot vacuum cleaner.

After researching the various brands and models, which can set you back more than a thousand dollars if you really want to go end, I decided to try the Shark Ion Robot (model 755), partly because our regular vacuum is a Shark that has performed well over the years, and partly because of good reviews when compared to a similar (and more expensive) industry leader (iRobot Roomba) unit.  The best price (this week) was at BJ's Wholesale Club, with a special price of $299.99 for a $30 savings if you purchased it online.   We don't have an online account, but as it happened they were offering that price in the store as well.  That's a little less than you would pay for the Roomba 690.
