Hacking Roomba

DorkBot SoCal Presentation: Un-everyday Environments

I gave a presentation at the June 3rd meeting of the SoCal instantiaton of dorkbot held at the wonderful Machine Project gallery. The theme was “Un-everyday Environments”, with robotic vacuum cleaners of the future being just one part of that. I brought along an entourage of Roombas to demonstrate the hackability of and fun available with these little robots.

Some of the things I talked about:

– RoombaMidi / Roombas making music
– Roomba Spirographs / Roombas making art
– Roomba as robotics experimentation platform
– What’s needed to hack a Roomba

You can see the summary of the meeting at the Dorkbot SoCal Past page.
