Readybot cleans a living room, our hearts continue to flutter

We were already ga-ga over the hobbyist-built ReadyBot cleaning bot when it was scrubbing down a kitchen, but this latest video of the all-white droid picking up a living room cluttered with kid's toys has us solidly past crush and into dangerous obsession territory. Of particular note is that ReadyBot's brought a friend along for the ride -- it deploys a Roomba to vacuum the carpets while it works on the big stuff. Says lead dev Tom Benson, "Why should we re-invent something that already works great?" Good thinking -- an even better idea would be to send one of these things to Engadget HQ immediately. Video after the break.
