Were you ever too tired to clean your smartphone or tablet? Was it just too tiring a task to endure? Well, Japanese company, Takara Tomy has a solution for you! If you’re familiar with the Roomba, then this should be pretty self-explanatory — it’s a roomba for your smartphone or tablet.

If you don’t know what a Roomba is, that’s okay too. The Automee-S, is a 2.75 inch polisher that automatically roams around your device and cleans it for you. The device is equipped with 3 tires, 2 of which are made of special cleaning paper to remove the dirt. The Automee-S has sensors onboard so the little guy doesn’t go falling off the edges of your device. Here’s a video so you can see the device in action:

If you’re interested in the device, it goes in sale this March in Japan for 1,575 yen or around $17.
