Roomba Beware: The New RYDIS Line Vacuums AND Mops!

H67-Pro-H68-Pro-ComboLet’s face it: There are some folks out there that simply aren’t impressed by a watch that tells you the weather and notifies you of incoming calls and texts–after all, we already have smartphones that can do that. But robotic vacuums? That’s a completely different story…and I’ve yet to talk with anyone who wouldn’t be willing to give up their vacuum routine if there was an automated option that fit their budget. While Roomba made a big splash with its original line of robotic vacuums, Moneual is taking it to the next level with its 2 new RYDIS models–the H67 Pro and H68 Pro. In addition to vacuuming your floors, both models are also able to mop up your messes, with the H68 even supplying its own water tank–an industry first. Both vacuums promise excellent battery life, as well as motors that feature a 5,000 hour lifespan–which, unless you’re Howard Hughes, should be more than enough to keep your floors clean well into the next decade. The H67 Pro and H68 Pro list for $399 and $499 respectively, and you can check out all of the details, including retail availability, after the jump.

Nvidia’s Shield console can now stream games over the web

Promised two weeks ago and delivered today, Nvidia’s big April software update for Shield is highlighted by the introduction of remote game streaming. Until now, the Android-powered handheld was capable of playing graphically intensive games that were being processed by and streamed out of your home PC, but it required that both devices be on the same network. Though still in beta as of now, the remote version of Nvidia’s GameStream offers to do the same wherever you are, provided there’s a fast enough internet connection. What’s more, Nvidia is enabling GameStream from laptops as well, with its latest graphics chips being supported.

Android gaming consoles have interested device makers for a while now, but none of the attempts so far…
