SparkFun just hit us with an AWESOME Roomba hack & how to! – “The RooTilt is just an amalgamation of toys here at Spark Fun Electronics. We took a Bluetooth wireless accelerometer, tweaked the firmware a bit, and combined it with the RoboDynamics RooTooth wireless link for the Roomba. Now you can literally drive your Roomba to the pile of Styrofoam bits on your floor (because you know I hate Styrofoam) all from the comfort of your couch!”Link.
