We Wish This Were Real: A Pet Seat For Your Roomba

Everybody get on the Roomba-riding bandwagon!

Earlier this month, the folks at iRobot teased a new product called the Waggin' Wagon. It's like a car seat for your pet, meant to be mounted on your Roomba.

At Reviewed.com we've covered the quirky phenomenon of robot-powered pet vehicles to exhaustion, so we thought we'd seen it all. Nope! This is something new and exciting, and we want one.

I mean, why wouldn't you want one? Two words: Shark Cat.

There's only one problem: The Waggin' Wagon isn't real. The big giveaway, of course, was the date on the PR blast: April 1st.

Despite our disappointment, we're comforted by the fact that there are plenty of silly products that started off as jokes only to become rousing successes. People even thought Gmail was a joke because it was announced on April 1st, and now it's the dominant messaging service on the internet.

So listen up iRobot: We know this is a joke, but please create this. Please, let us strap our pets into your contraptions. This is what the people want.
