Sensors in daily life

I'm having trouble figuring out which is sensor and which is switch. What's the border line?

My Roomba, a vacuum cleaner. It certainly has sensors which I don't know what it is exactly.
Remote controls for Roomba, TV, DVD, and a Cable set.-IR...What's IR?
Elevator door, button.
My Mac
My refridge, oven, fire alarm.
At ITP, there's bunch. Cameras...
Treadmill...Speed, heartbeat conter, distance counter...
Cap
Restroom-tap. Motion sensor
etc.

Hey Sol, I have a Roomba too! We just got it over the Holidays and I love it* I am thinking of getting the hacking kit and fooling around with it a bit. What do you think?

Well, my Roomba has just broken. I had used only for 4 months and it just doesn't work anymore. I would love to get some help from anyone who can treat my roomba~~~Your idea is quite awesome I would say. Let me know.
