In a photo-illustration depicting one way that roboticists are developing robots to take over routine tasks, the Electrolux Robotic Vacuum Cleaner sucks up hair at a Hamburg, Germany,  barbershop. Soon to be available from Electrolux, a Swedish appliance company, the machine will vacuum floors constantly with its small, quiet, battery-powered motor. From the book Robo sapiens: Evolution of a New Species, page 162-163.
