By Dailymail. The hands-free machine ended up running into feces left behind from his dog - causing far more of a mess than Ryan had on his hands to begin with. The year-old aspiring film director took to Facebook to jokingly declare he would 'need therapy' after the gross incident. Fail: A photo posted to Facebook by Florida native Ryan Landy, 23, showed the horrifying mess that happened when his hands-free vacuum had run into dog poo.Roomba Spreads Dog Poop
Poomba: Ladry's Roomba robot, pictured, was more of a hindrance than a help when it came into contact with his pet's poo. Over 82, people have interacted with Landy's post in the Well That Sucks forum.
Landy stated that the dog in question was a new rescue pup adopted by the family. The new addition to the household is also still being trained. Reddit commentors weighed in with options about what he would do, with members joking that he should either buy a new Roomba - to clean up the mess of the old Roomba - and even that he should buy a new house.
Other people on the thread commented that they had had similar experiences. The wheels and brushes were the worst. Cleaning the carpet was child's play compared to the Roomba restoration. Pet owner: Ryan Landy, 23, was not pleased arriving his to the havoc wreacked by the Roomba.
You clean the roomba a bit more. You answer some posts on reddit, you enjoy the karma, you clean the roomba a bit more,' the commentor joked.
A article that ran in The Guardian detailed a 'poopocalypse', with many owners of Roombas recalling times where their pets' poo had been smeared all over the house by the handy robot. Poopocalypse: It's not unusual for a Roomba to pick up and spread pet mess all over the house when cleaning, a company spokesperson admits stock image.
A representative from iRobot, which manufactures the device, told the outlet that disasters like this do happen on the regular. With animals anything can happen.

It then positions itself directly over the clump or clumps and uses a mechanical claw as a scoop. The robot puts the poop in a sealed container for disposal, according to the company.
The drone, through thermal energy detection, spots the poop and transmits GPS coordinates of the feces to a robot on the ground that collects the waste, the company said. Technology makes our lives better. This is an example of one way it can do it. The company later revealed it was an April Fools joke after all. Given their history, my advice is not to make a major investment — either in a backyard-poop-scooping robot, or in a backyard-poop-scooping-robot company.
Gotta agree with you, no mechanical robot will be able to be efficient at picking up dog poop. How would the Beetl get into hedges, flower pots, sand, rocks and gravel? Better off hiring a professional pooper scooper to keep your yard clean. Or shall we continue to have to stoop and scoop? There were suspicions that was all a hoax, too. My guess is that, futuristic as it sounds, will not be seeing this come on the market.
In the meantime, the bending over will us all good.There's nothing quite like waking up to a freshly vacuumed living room rug, which Jesse Newton of Little Rock, Arkansas enjoyed each morning thanks to his family's beloved self-propelled Roomba vacuum. Touted as a "partner for a cleaner home," designed to help busy families "stay ahead of daily dust and dirt by vacuuming for you," this robotic wonder features multiple sensors to nimbly navigate across rooms and around furniture with ease.
Unfortunately, the Roomba isn't yet equipped to detect when it has run over a fresh pile of dog poop. Newton learned this lesson the hard way recently on a night in early August, when his young 4-year-old son crawled into bed with him and his wife, Kelly, reeking of dog feces. And it found the poop left by our puppy Evie," says Newton in a Facebook post that now boasts overshares. After he leaped out of bed and flipped on the lights, Newton came face-to-face with what he described as a "war zone of poop" as well as a "Pooptastrophe and the Poopocalypse.
We can't tell, but we love it. Bad enough, Newton says, that the robotic vacuum had spread "dog poop over every conceivable surface within its reach, resulting in a home that closely resembles a Jackson Pollock poop painting. He continues to explain that the vacuum, with its deep cleaning cycles, had expertly mashed feces across floorboards, furniture legs, carpets, rugs and even on the kids' toy boxes.
Others have had similar experiences, and have posted videos of their own crap-driven catastrophes on the web. Newton continues: "Those awesome Roomba wheels, which have a checkered surface for better traction, left foot poop trails all over the house. Our lovable Roomba looked like it had been mudding.
Yes, mudding — like what you do with a Jeep on a pipeline road. But in poop. To accompany his hilarious story on Facebook, Newton created a hand-drawn picture of the crappy chaos caused by the Roomba. Without waking his wife, Newton carefully started the lengthy and difficult process of cleaning house.
He began by cleaning his son, then tackling the room by himself with various tools and pieces of equipment, including multiple rolls of paper towels, bleach water, carpet shampooer and a steam mop. He returned to bed — smelling of various cleaning agents — hours later. Surprisingly, Newton attempted to later clean and repair the Roomba because, well, he just loves the machine that much. Alas, it was no more. He had tossed it in the bathtub to let it soak, but had failed to remove the battery beforehand, which rendered it DOA.
On a positive note, Hammacher Schlemmer, the company where Newton purchased the Roomba, heard his excruciating tale of woe, and is replacing the broken vacuum. Other companies, including Merry Maids and Clorox, have also connected with the Newtons with offers to help.
And as for Evie and her poop party: "This is the only time she's done this, so it's probably just because we forgot to let her out before we went to bed that night. We doubt the Newtons will ever forget to let Evie outside before bed ever again. Follow today. Don't miss a beat, like us on Facebook. Watch this patient dog wait for a ball in a 'puppy resort' pool June 16, On Sunday, a man named Ryan Landy made a Facebook post about a truly harrowing situation: His new Roomba ran over a pile of dog poop in his house, became riddled with dog poop, then cleaned the rest of his house.
Thus, the rest of his house is now covered in dog poop. Since Landy wanted a clean house — the ostensible purpose of a Roomba — and not a house absolutely coated in dog shit, this was an issue. Sadly, Landy's experience is not the first time a Roomba has caused this particular brand of destruction. Ina man named Jesse Newton discovered his Roomba had coated his home in a fine layer of canine feces after his 4-year-old son came into his bedroom "smelling like dog poop.
And we're sure that between andmany instances of Roomba dog shit have gone unreported. It cannot be easy to admit that your once sort-of clean home is now totally smeared with excretions from the family dog. We're using cookies to improve your experience.

And sometimes our own life lessons need to be told to everyone else because we know deep down that nobody else should have to live our life lessons. Today, thanks to the ease of the Internet, we are able to share our life lessons with thousands and thousands of people, and we can do it from our couch or even the toilet, because of a lot of us Facebook while we poop! Speaking of poop, one guy learned the really hard way that a Roomba doesn't pick up everything. If you've never heard of a Roomba before, it's an adorable little robot that goes around vacuuming for you while you do whatever it is you do.
For Jesse Newton ranting on the " Haslemere Rants " community page, they are the ones who learned the hard way:. It's taken me until now to wrap my head around it and find the words to describe the horror.
It started off simple enough - something that's probably happened to most of you. This is the only time she's done this, so it's probably just because we forgot to let her out before we went to bed that night. Now, if you have a detective's mind, you may be wondering how we know the poop occurred between midnight and am.
We were asleep, so how do I know that time frame? And it found the poop. And so begins the Pooptastrophe. If you have a Roomba, please rid yourself of all distractions and absorb everything I'm about to tell you. It will be on your furniture legs. It will be on your rugs. It will be on your kids' toy boxes. If it's near the floor, it will have poop on it. Our lovable Roomba, who gets a careful cleaning every night, looked like it had been mudding.
Yes, mudding - like what you do with a Jeep on a pipeline road. But in poop. And you'll walk into the living room. And you'll wonder why the floor feels slightly gritty. Like it's proud of itself. You were still half-asleep until this point, but now you wake up pretty damn quickly. You scrub the poop off his feet and put him back in bed. But you don't bother cleaning your own feet, because you know what's coming. It's inevitable, and it's coming at you like a freight train.
Some folks would shrug their shoulders and get back in bed to deal with it in the morning. You toss it in the bathtub to let it soak. You pull it apart, piece-by-piece, wondering at what point you became an adult and assumed responsibility for am-Roomba-disassembly-poop-cleanups. By this point, the poop isn't just on your hands - it's smeared up to your elbows.
You already heard the Roomba make that "whirlllllllllllllllll-boop-hisssssssss" noise that sounds like electronics dying, and you realize you forgot to pull the battery before getting it wet.
You're saying things that would make Satan shudder in revulsion.In a ROTF, peeing-in-your-panties Facebook posta shell-shocked Jesse Newton details exactly what can happen to your beloved home when these two entities become acquainted. Do not, under any circumstances, let your Roomba run over dog poop. If the unthinkable does happen, and your Roomba runs over dog poop, stop it immediately and do not let it continue the cleaning cycle.
Because if that happens, it will spread the dog poop over every conceivable surface within its reach, resulting in a home that closely resembles a Jackson Pollock poop painting. According to Newton, the problem started in the wee hours of the morning, when he, his family and their adorable puppy Evie were all fast asleep in their beds.
Though most of us can pretty well imagine how that must have gone down, according to Newton, everything that could go wrong really did, from a poop-covered baby, to poop polished baseboards, to a dishonored Roomba that is almost unidentifiable in its poop-covered state.
Check out the full post herein all of its poop-covered glory.

But having it all over the house I am pretty sure it would have had taken me a year to talk about it as well. It must have taken ages to clean everything and get that smell out of the house. Can't blame the dog I hope the dad did get in contact with the robo company and asked for a poo-emergency-stop-function for the Roomba. Not sure if they ever heard of a story like this. He even got a new roomba!
