Via Hizook comes this QuadDrive Roomba robot from the University of Bonn’s Autonomous Intelligent Systems Lab ([email protected]). Check out the (German-language) video to see how the Roomabs move in unison via four servos connect to the base of the bot. And as Hizook points out, built on four Roombas, this is a bot that cleans as it goes! And the resulting humanoid doesn’t look anything like a creepy character from Clockwork Orange.
