WiiRoomba: the geekiest way to clean your floor

This guy decided that having a vaccum creature crawling around his house of it’s own volition was a little too unnerving, so he added manual control; that is, he hacked the thing into accepting commands from his Wiimote. After brewing a dark concoction of perl scripting and bluetooth voodoo, he now has a Roomba sans it’s most compelling feature: autonomity. The ingenuity behind this little project is only matched by the sheer vagina-eschewing nerdery of hacking a game controller to control a cleaning robot.

His next project? A toaster that shoots deadly lazers at any woman who ever imagined the idea of procreation with him.
