"According to a recently resurfaced study conducted by researchers at Georgia Tech, people’s relationships with their gadgets, in this case Roombas, can be downright emotional. As Popular Science reports: 30 committed users studied as part of the research effort, two-thirds had named their devices and half had assigned them an arbitrary gender. Others in the study were found to rearrange their homes to be more accommodating to the robots, while others pre-clean their homes before putting the machine to work and buy new rugs that don’t tie up the Roomba on its programmed march around the house. One subject even introduced his Roomba to his parents."
