Armed with the Roomba theme song, do your best robot dance, then submit the result at their youtube site. The public will choose the winners. Top three votes get a special iRobot trophy, and all 20 first prize winners get their video featured on the site, and their very own Roomba which can be programmed as a sentry that can protect your home from invaders. Ok, the programming part is a lie, but getting your own Roomba is pretty awesome. Ready? Set? Robot!
