CES 2011: Video of dancing robot floor cleaners

LAS VEGAS — The Mint Cleaner is the wood floor equivalent of the Roomba vacuum cleaner. It’s a little robot that dusts wood and laminate floors with either Swiffer wipes or a rewashable microfiber cloth. The Mint started selling at Bed Bath & Beyond and Amazon.com for $199 six months ago.

Check out this video of dancing Mint Cleaners at the Consumer Electronics Show. The cleaners don’t actually dance in your house — the company programmed these cleaners to show off the tight cornering of the cleaner.
