Roomba Pac-Man is Pac-Man IRL

Robotics Technology

Have too many Roombas and don’t know what to do with them? Instead of letting your cats ride on them or taking pictures of how they work, why not make a real-life Pac-Man game? Thats what a group of enterprising engineers from Colorado State University did with Roomba Pac-Man. In the game, a human controls Pac-Man using a joystick, and each ghost acts autonomously to find and chase our hero.

My favorite part is that the dots are actually bits of paper that the Pac-Man roomba has to physically vacuum up. [via hacked gadgets]

    That would be the University of Colorado at Boulder, not CSU. I know because these guys are in the lab next door to me. Their day gig is UAVs, which they do very well.
