Ever wish there was an alternate after market Roomba brush.

I think one modeled on the Shark brush could be more effective than newer rubber extractor rollers for hair, especially on carpet. Relying more upon suction alone seems to leave a lot of hair behind compared to older bristle models and different floor types have different needs.

That is probably patented and to even make their own similar design would risk a lawsuit, unless iRobot licensed the original patent from Shark and paid royalties to Shark on each brush manufactured.

From the earliest "sticks and stones" technologies of our prehuman ancestors to the latest "high tech" technologies of today, I like studying it all!
