IRobot unveils new Looj, launches video channel
Burlington's iRobot Corp. said it unveiled the second generation of its iRobot Looj Gutter Cleaning Robot at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas today.
The next generation Looj has new features that help it break up clogged leaves and debris faster and improve overall performance, iRobot said. (In an AP file photo at right, an iRobot executive shows off an earlier version of the Looj.)
