I just got a Create 2 for Christmas, and while I'm planning to create with it (obviously), I'd like to use it around the house as a vacuum if at all possible. I've heard that you can buy parts for the Roomba and throw them on to this chassis, but I wanted to confirm/refute that before I bought anything. Is that possible or am I crazy?

Yes, you can buy Roomba 600 accessories from store.irobot.com to turn your Create2 back into a working vacuum. Note however that there is no way to "cheat the system". While the Create2 is cheaper than the Roomba 650, it will cost you way more in spare parts to return its vacuuming functionality than if you had just bought a 650 in the first place.
