Roomba Christmas Caroling Hack

at 5:23 am. Filed under DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks


Merry Christmas from everyone here at Hacked Gadgets, keeping the hacking tradition alive the video today is three roomba robots performing Christmas carols. 🙂

“Make your Roomba a musical instrument!

RoombaMidi2 is a small Mac OS X program that makes your Roomba appear as a MIDI interface to MIDI sequencer programs like Ableton Live, Apple Logic, and so on. RoombaMidi2 is an update of the original Java-based RoombaMidi.

The CoreMIDI-to-Java APIs provided by Apple look to be getting deprecated (as are all Apple-specific Java APIs). To get around any problems, the updated RoombaMidi2 is written in Objective-C for the GUI and C for the “roombalib” Roomba control API.”
