PetSafe Pawz Away Instant Pet Barrier for Inside the Home


Is your dog getting into the trash, jumping on the furniture or the beds, eating off the kitchen counter and the dining room table, or hounding your baby?

Here at Super Cool Pets we generally shy away from products that deliver shock correction to pets, no matter how mild. But we concede there are times that pet owners truly need to keep their dog away from certain areas inside the home.

The PetSafe Pawz Away Instant Pet Barrier requires no training or installation and runs on batteries. The Zone covers an area between 2 and 12 feet in diameter.

Automated Pet Hair and Dirt Removal -- Neato Robotic Vacuum Cleaner


The popular Roomba will soon have some competition. According to Priya Ganapati at Wired.com "despite a passionate community of users, Roomba has faced a few criticisms":

The gadget uses a randomized algorithm to clean a room, which has led to complaints that it doesn't always cover an area completely. Roomba has also suffered from a small bin that limits how much it can clean on a single battery charge. That also limits its ability to clean multiple rooms.

The new Neato Robotic Vacuum Cleaner is purportedly smarter than the Roomba. While the Roomba utilizes a zig zag pattern, the Neato cleans back-and-forth using mapping technology to determine the room's perimeter and locate walls and furniture up to 4 meters via a laser-guidance system, rather than through impact.

Dust-bin removal is out the back of the Roomba and from a relatively larger bin on the top of the Neato. Other Neato features are scheduling, detection of drop-offs and stairwells, and a low profile (less than four inches high) allowing it to clean under beds, sofas, and toe-kicks in the kitchen.

The Neato XV-11 all-floor vacuum system will be available for purchase in the U.S. this coming February 2010 priced at $399.
