I had an idea for a mod, not sure if it's possible or not but here's the idea.
Basically, a Roomba mod that you can make one of those little robot vacuums, set it in your house, and it activates when it detects items on the floor. It would scoot over, suck them up, and either deposit them all into one chest or sort them into their respective specified chests (not sure if you can do that part).
This could increase productivity by allowing you to just step inside, chuck your items on the ground, and leave while Roomba puts them away for you.
I made something like this back in 2012 for the Artilects mods as a prototype. I called them Shoe bots due to there small size. They acted very similarly to a roomba with the ability to collect items but also the ability to mine + build. I'll see if I can find the old code and share it with whoever wants to make this mod.
