Consumers can get custom skins for their cell phones and MP3 players. The trend is migrating to more traditional home appliances. San Diego, California, U.S.-based SkinIt, Inc. today launched customizable vinyl skins for iRobot Home floor care robots.

SkinIt provides on-demand and custom physical personalization of mobile electronic devices. Its vinyl skins for iRobot Corp. home robots are offered through a Web portal at www.irobotskins.com, allowing customers to personalize iRobot Roomba(R) Vacuuming Robots and iRobot Scooba(TM) Floor Washing Robots. Users can choose from designs that include art from professional sports, movies and popular music. Customers can also upload their own photos to make custom skins.

"Our robots take on unique roles in our customers' homes. We hear from people that they often personalize their Roomba and Scooba robots by naming them," said Greg White, executive vice president and general manager, iRobot (Burlington, Massachusetts, U.S.).

Each SkinIt skin is easy to apply, will not void the product warranty and offers a protective element that is said to provide the appliance with another layer of safety from scratches and other damage. The skin is removable, allowing users to personalize their robots as often as they choose without damaging the product.

SkinIt offers decoratives skins that allow consumers to personalize more than 500 other mobile devices including cell phones, iPods, laptops, PDAs, and gaming devices.

"The personalization trend continues to grow and consumers are looking for new and innovative ways to personalize all of their electronic products," says Patrick Pounders, SkinIt vice president, Partner Sales. "The iRobot Roomba and iRobot Scooba were a natural fit for us and we are thrilled to provide this creative resource for home robot customers."

The cost of each iRobot vinyl skin ranges from U.S. $19.98 to $29.98.
