Animals Riding Roombas Is The Future

For decades we have been promised new inventions that would “change transportation forever." Sadly, from high-speed rail to electric car, jet-pack to Segway, nothing has been able to overtake the gas-guzzling status quo. Until now…

What started as one cat riding a robotic vacuum cleaner has given way to a full-blown revelation of animal Roomba riders. It only seems logical that the trend will soon rise up the evolutionary ladder until Roombas become the main method of commuting for humans as well.

Sure, there’s no way to actually control where the device goes, but when you’re riding with this much style, does it really matter?
