Say hello to the $500 solar-powered robot that will clean your pool

Using a pool? Awesome. Owning and maintaining a pool? Decidedly less awesome. Having to clean it every day is a real drag, one that sort of offsets the awesomeness of being able to swim in a pool whenever you want. Luckily, there's a friendly new robot who's here to help relieve some of the burden.

The Solar-Breeze is a $500 robot that floats around in your pool, cleaning it up all day long. It's solar powered, and it reduces pump usage costs, which means it will not only save you the trouble of manually skimming your pool, but it'll save you money as well. Can't go wrong with that.
