Answer:

Gååglebot. This chap is a Roomba with modifications. It runs around your  house taking pics of things, and OCRs the text to make a searchable database of where everything is. Essentially, you can Google your house :P

    GåågleBot (pronounced /google-bot/) to remote control your Roomba from the web to do the vacuuming or some snooping around the house while you’re away from home.

    GåågleBot is a “home crawler” consisting of a vacuum roomba with an on board webserver and camera. While the vacuum goes about its business, it extracts text from the images it takes. The text is later put in a database on the roomba and searchable through a web interface.

    That’s the little Roomba mod that showed up on Slashdot a few days ago: runs around inside your house, takes pictures, runs OCR on them, makes a searchable database of said pictures/text.

    By the way, the library book you’ve been looking for is under the couch gathering dust.
