School District in Berks County Buys Robot Janitor

Sick of cleaning your floors at home? Well, for $25,350 you can have a robot janitor. The Governor Mifflin School Board in Berks County has purchased a robot from a cleaning supply company in Plymouth Meeting. The machine will allow the district to reduce it’s custodial staff and save over $20,000 a year. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’ll be preparing for the rise of the machines. [NBC Philadelphia]
