The IEEE unearthed a fascinating 2013 study that showed that a cute dog tail does more than just amuse — it can communicate.

The study, created by Ashish Singh and James Young, posited that a Roomba with a tail attached could communicate quickly and easily with a human — a fast, excited wag means things are going OK, while a slow side to side motion shows disdain.
