Jaysus, this is just such clever name for such a clever design, I think I'm going to puke. Roofus removes snow from flat roofs.

OK, roofs collapse from snow, but that only happens with huge amounts of heavy, wet snow, not the little flurries this little gadget could handle.

By the way, I am working on a really needed design: the Poopus, so stay tuned.

Implications - Since the invention of robots, the production and purpose of these human-like machines has expanded to include virtually every industry and this expansion may cause human beings to eventually become obsolete in terms of services and goods production. Robotic vacuum cleaners, snowplows and gutter cleaners are just a few examples of robot-operated devices that once required human operators that are now entirely run via computer.
