If you grew up anytime between 1962 and 1992, you’ve probably seen a few episodes of the Hanna-Barbera Productions cartoon The Jetsons. This futuristic show promised us a lot of advances, from flying cars to a robotic maid named Rosie, who handles household chores. Now, The Jetsons was set in 2062, so we’ve got a few decades left to reach those goals, but that doesn’t mean that you have to live without a household robot in 2022. Here are some of the best home robots you can bring home today to help make your life a little easier.

Clean the House

Does anyone like cleaning their house or vacuuming the floors? One survey found that 73% of respondents in America feel like their homes would be cleaner if they had a robot to do their chores. While we might not have Rosie the Robot to do all the chores, there are a few tasks that we can delegate to our robotic companions. The iRobot Roomba i7+ is the latest incarnation of a robotic vacuum that’s been around since 2002. These tiny round robots can vacuum up everything from dirt to pet hair and make it a lot easier to keep your home clean. 

Mop the Floors

Vacuuming is excellent, but what if you’ve got all tile floors? It would help if you had a robot that can take floor cleaning a step further, and that’s where devices like the iRobot Bravva Jet 240 come in. The same company that created the Roomba vacuum has also released a mopping robot to keep those tile or hardwood floors clean. Using the companion app, you can even program your iRobot devices to work in tandem, keeping the floors as clean as possible without you having to lift a finger.

Mow the Lawn

Robotic assistants aren’t limited to indoors anymore. The WORX Landroid is a programmable robot that you can use to mow the lawn. An onboard shock sensor helps it remove obstacles from its path, allowing it to work in narrow spaces and angles up to 20 degrees. It isn’t water-resistant, but it’s equipped with sensors that tell it to return to its charging station when it’s raining or when the battery is running low. Kick your feet up and let the Landroid tackle outdoor chores

Clean the Windows

Clean windows mean you can enjoy plenty of natural sunlight in your home, but keeping them clean — especially if you have a multi-story home — can be an exhausting task. Why not let your robotic window cleaner do the job for you? However, to autonomously clean your windows, though you must move it from one window to the next. It will even cling to the window for up to 30 minutes after the battery dies. Use the included remote control or the companion app to control the robot, or you can choose to let it steer itself as it cleans every nook and cranny of your windows.

Scrub the Pool

Who doesn’t love spending the afternoon lounging in the pool? Of course, that only applies if you don’t have to spend the entire day scrubbing algae off the walls of the pool before you can enjoy it. The Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus is like a Roomba for your swimming pool, though it works best in smaller pools. This robot will clean your pool automatically. Schedule it to clean your pool daily or less frequently, depending on the buildup of debris or algae. All you need to do is clean out the filter once in a while. 

Clean the Grill

Cleaning your grill before your next cookout isn’t a particularly hard task, but why do it at all when you can program a robot to complete the job for you. The Grillbot uses spinning nylon, copper, or steel brushes to clean the cooking surfaces. Just put it on your grill, start the cleaning cycle, and you’re good to go. For being an incredibly convenient robot, it’s also remarkably affordable. For just over $100, you will never have to clean your grill by hand again.

Control the Thermostat

The easiest way to reduce your home’s carbon footprint and shrink your utility bills is to turn your thermostat up when you’re not home. Unfortunately, before in-home robotics, this meant having to suffer through a warm home in the summer or a cold one in the winter while you waited for your HVAC to catch up. In-home automation gives you the ability to adjust your home’s temperature remotely. Some even come with the ability to change the temperature based on the weather, a timer, or even your proximity to home. 

Empty the Litterbox

We love our furbabies, but let’s be honest here — no one likes cleaning out the litter box. Why not let a robot do it for you? At CES 2022, manufacturers debuted a robotic litter box with many different features. In addition to offering a self-cleaning feature, this box can monitor your cat’s water intake, track its weight, and even monitor habits and sleep patterns. This can be extremely valuable for cats who might have health problems or for older felines that need a bit more TLC to stay healthy.

Till the Fields

Autonomous cars are becoming more common, but what about autonomous tractors? Robotic tractors might be coming sooner than you think if John Deere has anything to say about it. They’re working on creating self-driving fully-autonomous tractors to help farmers around the globe cope with labor shortages and climate change. This will also help them grow enough food to support the growing population, which is expected to reach 8 billion by the end of 2022.

Cook Your Food

Creative endeavors are often thought of as being beyond the reach of robots. Even if we could manage to create a sentient AI, could it, in turn, create something new? If you’re not worried about creativity, robotic chefs could be cooking your meals shortly. As long as you’ve got the ingredients, a robotic chef could potentially cook you anything. Plug in a recipe and see what sort of tasty treats it can create for you.

Brew Your Coffee

Most of us can’t survive without our morning cup of coffee, but the line at Starbucks is often too much to bear. At CES 2022, a robotic barista caught our attention. The Yummy Future’s Robotic Coffee Shop can make a cup of coffee in 30 seconds and only requires 1-2 hours of maintenance for every 24-hour operational cycle. It might not have the love that your barista puts into your morning cup of joe, but if you’re more concerned with speed than sentimentality, it could help you get your morning caffeine fix.

Welcoming Our New Robotic Overlords

We joke about our new robot overlords, but the age of robotics is coming. It just won’t look like Terminator. Instead, robots will be able to work alongside humans to help make our lives easier. Even something as simple as a Roomba vacuuming the floor can make an enormous difference for someone who finds vacuuming difficult. You may find more robots in your home than you know what to do with sooner than you expect. 

And, if the robot uprising does happen, saying that we welcome our new robotic overlords can’t hurt our chances of survival, right?
