Automatic Vacuum Cleaner

How about an automatic vacuum cleaner which cleans your carpet or floor all by itself
at pre-set time ?

You would first train this cleaner with the floor area which you want it to clean regularly.
The cleaner will note down the area to be cleaned in the training mode. Once training is
done, you will have to specify the time and frequency of cleaning. At the specified time
the cleaner will come out of its base station, clean the room and will quietly get back to
its base station.

There are quite a lot of cleaning robots like roomba but would it be possible to build a cleaning robot using airship technology??? Maybe a smaller robot that vacuums around on the floor and a carrying airship that can lift the smaller robot from one place to another (stair, etc)

Or maybe a radio controlled helicopter (with rotor blade guards) could be better

After thinking an hour or so more about the subject i thought that the most workable idea for cleaning the floors automaticly would be a station that cleans and charges with electricity (so the rag sucks the dirt) a cleaning rag carried by rather small airship so it can fit in most places. There are already RC Electric model blimps so someone would need to write software for controlling the blimp and build a station that can exchange dirty cleaning rags into clean ones.

Build a small hovership with an extend able platform to move the roomba to differing locations, elevations and the such.
