Pimp my robot!

So I was having ideas about how I could improve my Scooba and whether I could hack it up, and I stumbled across this very very cool book/website. Now I am not a big fan of the new Battlestar Gallactica but a Cylon Roomba is just awesome!

In Hacking Roomba, Tod Kurt apparently shows us how to drive a Roomba, make it sing, turn it into a painter, put it on your Wifi network, add webcams and install Linux, amongst other things. I am totally adding this to the textbook list for the AI course I am teaching online this semester. Would love to see some students doing AI Roomba projects!
