Roomby Kirby Robot Vac

Today, friends, we have learned a very valuable lesson: never browse for gaming goods on 1st April.

Retailer ThinkGeek, which specialises in all sorts of geeky accessories and merchandise, has today uploaded a product listing for the 'Roomby: Kirby Robot Vacuum'. Working just like any other robot vacuum cleaner (we've always wanted one for some reason) this little contraption would see Kirby gliding around your home, sucking up all the dirt from your floor in the most adorable fashion we've ever seen. Just imagine.

Or at least, it would have done those things if it were real. Clicking 'Buy Now' on the product takes you to an April Fool's message - at least that's saved us the $300 it's listed for. Check it out in all its glory below.
