I have an older Roomba somewhere; it ended up collecting dust (ironically), because it couldn't get around the Morris chair, the ottoman, the mule chest, too many dining room chairs, etc, etc.
I'm waiting for nano-Roombas -- maybe a flock of a dozen of them can descend on the narrow clearances in my rooms. Wait -- let me get my utility patent in.
I don't know. I know for me, I love having a Roomba even though my house is older and my furniture is older and it can't get around everything. It's still a huge improvement over the hand held vacuum. Especially considering it makes my children and I more aware of what is on the floor. We now make sure we put our shoes on the shoe rack rather then just kicking them off wherever. We no longer throw anything on the floor really. And, since we use the Roomba almost every day, anything that does get on the floor gets picked up....every day. It is more than a Robotic vacuum. It seriously helps with keeping things picked up too. Totally worth it. I do have to move furniture around a bit if I want it to get everywhere. I do have to pick it up and move it to where I want it to clean sometimes. But that is nothing. I highly recommend. Modern furniture or not.

I received a call today on my cell phone, thought it was a telemarketer since the number was from a 317 area code. It was just 2005 Ireland calling for its children back.
