We’re a little late posting this, but check out the winner of the iRobot Create contest! –

iRobot Corp. today announced a winner in the iRobot Create Challenge contest. Built using the iRobot® Create® Programmable Robot, the winning entry, titled “Personal Home Robot,” was designed to make life around the house more convenient and entertaining. It can water plants, control lights and appliances, play music and remind owners to take medication. The robot’s creator, Danh Trinh, 35, of Towson, Md., won $5,000.

“This is an excellent example of the enthusiasm people bring to the idea of building robots,” said Helen Greiner, co-founder and chairman, iRobot Corp. “Contestants put in amazing efforts creating exciting and imaginative robots for the challenge. We saw everything from robots that serve food and drinks to robots that paint pictures and can be remotely controlled from distant locations.”
