Packing’s coming along nicely, so as a brief procrastination, I decided to see what news I could find about the robots online:

Mercury News has an article in several papers:

I contest the description of our robots as “vacuum cleaners that had been topped with cameras and microphones”. Hmph. Stupid iRobot. Stupid Roomba.

  1. I think you should have a roomba controlled by a Linksys WRT54GS.

    That would be sweet.

  2. Yes, because Linksys doesn’t have that wonderful magic backdoor installed into all of their routers. =)

  3. The backdoors we know about can be easily disabled, and replaced with ones of our own. A roomba with a wireless access point strapped on top would possess a panache that the magellans lack. This would surely make up for its lack of sensors.

Nurd Up!
