EUROBOTS GmbH, an internet retailer based in Germany that is authorized to sell autonomous robot helpers like the Roomba, has been on a robot domain name shopping spree.
The company which used Eurobots.de as its home page, acquired Eurobots.com this month for 22,000 Euro (or about $29,000 USD) through Sedo GreatDomains.
Before that acquisition, the company paid $3,239 USD in 2010 for Eurobots.co.uk.
Eurobots.net, a different company than EUROBOTS GmbH, which buys and sells used industrial robots, currently owns the top spot in the search engines for Eurobots.
EUROBOTS GmbH owns a number of “bot” domain names and online properties including Lawnbot.de and Cleanbot.de.
Small robots are making a move
You might not see them on store shelves everywhere you go, but small, autonomous robots like the Roomba are doing well when it comes to sales. iRobot reports that in 2009, the company, “generated more than $298 million in revenue and employed more than 500 of the robot industry’s top professionals, including mechanical, electrical and software engineers and related support staff. iRobot stock trades on the NASDAQ stock market under the ticker symbol IRBT.”
According to CNET: “iRobot demoed its updated line of robot floor cleaners at CES 2011, showing off a more powerful Roomba vacuum bot and a much more compact Scooba floor scrubber.”
