Roomba hacking is about to take off – “The robots of the future are beginning to emerge from basements and attics around the world – basements and attics with very clean floors. That’s because these new robots are being built on top of a popular automated floor cleaner, the Roomba. Designed by iRobot Corp. of Burlington, the Roomba is the world’s most successful robot, with 1.5 million units sold. Now, Roomba owners have begun reprogramming and redesigning their robot vacuums, just because they can.” Link.
