Drive your Roomba with your cell phone

at 5:31 am. Filed under Crazy Hacks, Electronic Hacks


As we all know the Roomba was designed to clean floors, but it can do much more. Tod Kurt has created a phone controlled Roomba.

“Ever since Bluetooth adapters for Roombas appeared, I’ve wanted to control my Roomba with a cell phone. All my recent phones have had Bluetooth. But getting a devkit for a phone was expensive and phone-specific. Trying to develop J2ME (aka “JavaME”) applications for cell phones has been a mess, especially for non-Windows users. Thankfully, Mobile Processing wraps up the ugly details, like Processing does for normal Java. It makes writing little programs for your phone pretty easy, and makes whipping up a program to control a Roomba possible.”
