If George Jetson’s giant floating habitat pod had gutters, a little robot like the Looj would probably be up there cleaning them. This kind of purpose-built tool screams both “Future!” and “Gimmick!” — but the little tracked gutter-runner does appear to work.
The general idea: You lug the Looj up to the gutter, pop it down in the channel, and, via the remote, send it down the line with its rotating brush spinning up a storm and clearing the debris in its path. The agitator throws all the newly churned-up mess out of the gutter and onto the lawn, where you can dispose of it in any number of ways –- at least in theory.
We’ve checked out the videos and heard some stories here and there about how it works — but our question is, does this really help? Or is it a machine that’s designed to separate you from $100? Let us know in comments.
