ETech: Roomba Cockfighting
Those of you who read Make Magazine know that Phil Torrone has been working on remote-controlled Roomba vacuum cleaners. Well, tonight at ETech, Phil and Jeff Han got to test their mettle battling their Roombas in a Roomba cockfight. I took a few pictures and put them up on flickr. I also took 2 video clips of a short battle and a slightly longer battle. After a few more rounds of fighting, I suggested to Phil that we could mount my digital camera to the top of one of the Roombas to create the RoombaCam. The result is 5 video clips in RoombaVision™. They are round n-4, round n-3, round n-2, round n-1, and the final round.
