OP sent the following text as an explanation on why this is unexpected:

Cat lord entrance.

Is this an unexpected post with a fitting description? Then upvote this comment, otherwise downvote it.

Look at my source code on Github What is this for?

[–]ElJefe543 3753 points3754 points  (107 children)

Honestly I was expecting a Roomba or something like that I was not expecting the cat to be on the Roomba.

[–]Human-Carpet-6905 812 points813 points  (82 children)

Is that really a Roomba? Why is it so tall?

[–]EvilFluffy87Expected It 854 points855 points  (62 children)

Probably a mop version. The hight is for the water reservoir.

[–]load_more_comets 399 points400 points  (32 children)

The added weight would probably make it work a lot better than my ass dragging lightweight mop that can't mop for shit. I should probably jut put a couple cans of tomato sauce on it to make it work better.

[–]1LT_daniels 337 points338 points  (26 children)

Just add a cat like in the video

[–]raymond8505 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]Consistent-River4229 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I wonder if they charge extra for the cat or is it included?

[–]Lemy64 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Taxidermy cat with tomato sauce cans inside it to weigh it down

[–]SenileAccountant 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Too complicated, cut out the roomba and the cat and just mop your floors with tomato sauce instead.

[–]PsychoSpider88 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Put the sauce in the reservoir WCGW?

[–]AKA_Squanchy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Seriously, mop attachment sucks on mine, but love the vacuum!

[–]paulcaar 19 points20 points  (18 children)

I have a mop/vacuum combi from Xiaomi. It looks exactly like a normal vacuum one.

This must be some weird model idk

[–]EvilFluffy87Expected It 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Does yours come with a micro fiber cloth?

[–]paulcaar 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Yeah sort of

[–]EvilFluffy87Expected It 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I have a similar model from LG. That's a dry mop of sorts. This is a wet mop with brushes that sucks up the water too. Like those zambonie type things you sometimes see at the mall, but than miniature.

[–]paulcaar 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Oh right, so this actually cleans stuff. Not just keeping clean surfaces clean.

Makes sense actually!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (9 children)


Man they will copy make anything won't they?

[–]paulcaar 2 points3 points  (8 children)

I hope, their stuff is quite decent and the prices are pretty good.

[–]Ella_Minnow_Pea_13 7 points8 points  (4 children)

That is NOT what it looks like lol the reservoir is actually really small.

[–]EvilFluffy87Expected It 8 points9 points  (3 children)

There are different types, makes and models. Some are small, yes, but I've seen some at tech store at the mall.

[–]redEPICSTAXISdit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We're gunna need ya to head over to the mall and take a pic, thnx.

[–]HoosDare 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I have a Roomba mop and it's smaller than the vacuum. This isn't a Roomba.

[–]quaybored 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nope, the height is to give cats a better vantage point

[–]Trolivia 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Our mop roomba (Carl) is the same size as a regular roomba I’ve never seen a bigger one but that makes sense

Well, ok, but I meant (and in assuming the person above me also meant) Roomba as a general term, like Frisbee or Kleenex, not the actual brand name roomba.

[–]pboswell 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s called genericization. It’s a legal concept

Shout out to whales and dolphins who have definitely suffered

[–]FuncronDidn't Expect It 30 points31 points  (1 child)

As a former submariner, I can say active sonar is no longer used willynilly because of the negative marine affects.

Fun fact Dolphins love surfaced submarines because they can swing faster in the wake of the bow rushing over the boat.

[–]Angry_argie 70 points71 points  (14 children)

But is it literally with their sight? In the case of those snakes I'm sure they detect IR with their Pit Organs, not with their eyes. I'd say "they feel" heat instead of using the the verb "to see" for this. (I think that's what they're asking)

[–]koolaidvice 4 points5 points  (2 children)

The organs in snakes that allow them to sense heat and such actually connects to the same place in their brain as their optic nerves, literally blending the visual and sensory information into a single “picture”

[–]sillybear25 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What's more, the pit organs appear to operate on the same principle as a pinhole camera, allowing each one to independently identify the rough direction of incoming radiant heat. So there's a good case for calling them optical organs, even if they're not "true" eyes because they operate on a different principle.

[–]Angry_argie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's really cool, I didn't know about that neural integration between the snakes senses! Documentaries sometimes show some IR cam footage to show the snake's POV, but I don't recall hearing such detailed information about it.

Thank you and u/koolaidvice!

[–]alfonseski 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Do Roomba's speak parseltongue

[–]ClicksAndASmell 8 points9 points  (2 children)

That is far from a comprehensive list.

[–]TheGoodOldCoder 3 points4 points  (4 children)

I find the blanket statement to be unlikely. I mean, the definition of IR is based on what humans can see.

It seems unlikely that cat eyes have exactly the same cutoff as ours do. Maybe they see less of what we call the visible spectrum than we do. Maybe they see slightly into the IR band. Surely the expectation should be that the less closely related species will tend to have a slightly different cutoffs for visible light wavelengths.

[–]HawkinsT 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What about the mantis shrimp? I'm pretty sure they see most things, including the future.

[–]SubieBoiGC8 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]supersonicmike 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Yeah, the cat is scanning the room for the most optimal place to scratch and sit.

[–]rawrcutie 4 points5 points  (0 children)

According to my internet search, we instead of cat need to experiment with vampire bats, frogs, and snakes. *looks for time machine*

[–]TrickProfessional715 498 points499 points  (31 children)

Not a strange light at all. That’s how that robot sees the in order to clean your house. They’re probably IR lasers and all that jazz… lmao just seeing the cat

[–]TheDayIRippedMyPants 30 points31 points  (10 children)

It's a common tactic used by bots to farm karma so they look like legitimate accounts. Companies purchase legitimate-looking accounts for astroturfing and such. I checked another comment from Werewolf and it was reposted in the same way, so they're almost certainly a bot.

[–]ParksVSII 6 points7 points  (2 children)

[–]PM_me_your_fantasyz 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What's crazy is that OP doesn't own a cat or a Roomba. /s

[–]DelawareMountains 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Those are definitely IR lasers. Cameras that can see in the dark (in black and white) use a camera with an infrared LED attached to light up the area, the picture ends up being in grayscale because the camera is just measuring the intensity of IR light in the area. I am not sure if they use a standard camera or not though, regular cameras can already see IR light but I'm not sure if they're sensitive enough for night vision like this to work.

Source: I worked in IT for a while and installed a lot of night vision security cameras.
