Michael Reeves modified his Roomba to cuss when it bumps into shit
Today, we’ve got something special. Some guy on the internet (Michael Reeves over on YouTube) tweaked a Roomba to swear when it runs into
I could offer a summary of the video itself, which includes a public exhibition of the device in a Target retail store, but I don’t think I could do it justice.
If you can handle a bit of swearing, you should just watch it, because it’s amazing.
From a technical standpoint, it’s not a terribly complicated modification.
Reeves gutted his Roomba so that it could no longer clean, and fitted the freed-up space with some pretty cheap hardware like a Raspberry Pi, radio receiver, Bluetooth speaker, and a handful of new sensors.
When the Roomba bumps into (or is remotely driven into) something, a Raspberry Pi starts swearing like a one-eyed carpenter over a Bluetooth speaker.
Don’t you wish you had one of these at home?
