iRobot Create Robot Review

I did a quick review of the iRobot Create, iRobot’s robotics hacking-oriented robot that is basically a Roomba in disguise.

Short version: All the Roomba hacks here work on the Create, and the Create offers several advantages to the serious robotics experimenter. However, it’s not as cost-effective if you’re on a budget.

Roomba Hacking at Maker Faire

Come see many of the Roomba hacks on this site and in the book! Roombas will be singing, dancing, making art and generally making a nuisance of themselves.

Maker Faire is “a two-day, family-friendly event that celebrates arts, crafts, engineering, science projects and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset. It’s for creative, resourceful folks who like to tinker and love to make things. We call them Makers.”

It’ll be a lot of fun, come join us!

Where: Maker Faire, San Mateo Fairgrounds.
When: May 19 & 20
