Helen Greiner And The Roomba By Alexis “Roomba!! What is a Roomba? Is it a type of dance? No, it’s a helpful household cleaning object that moves on its own, like a vacuum, but you don’t need to hold it.” Helen Greiner was born on December 6, 1967, in London, United Kingdom. She is a Cofounder and Chairmen, iRobot inventor. She helped invent the Roomba. She keeps two kayaks and a small sunfish sailboat on her private dock, and plans to own a ski boat one day. She hasn’t died, but she is 45 years old. Helen is a HUGE fan of R2D2. When she was in her thirties she went to go meet him in person, and was very excited. In 2002 the U.S. Congress passed a joint resolution authorizing the president to use the U.S. military as he seems necessary and appropriate against Iraq, provided that the action will not hinder efforts to pursue the Al Qaeda terrorist network and that the president declares to Congress that “diplomatic efforts to enforce the U.N. resolution have failed.” Another world event that was going on at the time was on April 26th in Eastern Germany. 18 students were killed in a school massacre. The Roomba helped people by cleaning their houses better and not having to worry about cords or worrying about the elderly falling and tripping over the cords. They can just press a button and walk away. The Roomba stops when it is done so you just have to come by, pick it up, and put it away. When you are using the Roomba you just have to take it out of where you keep it and push a button. After that you can walk away and not have to worry about cords or anything like that. The Roomba stops when it is done so you just have to come by, pick it up, and put it away. There is no hassle in where to put it because it is small enough to fit in a drawer. Remember when you are using a Roomba it was made by Helen Greiner, and the IRobot crew.
