"He promises better cleaning time."
Smart idea, but the execution could use a little work. Might look better if the LEDs were all yellow, and the chomping animation was more fluid (like in the games?).
All the same, it was pretty cool. With some improvements, even I would want one.
I think they are yellow, and may be fluid, it’s just the digital camera compensating for low light making them look orange/red and jumpy.
Packman. Roomba… I’d call it a Poobah.
(“If you want to know who we are…”)
Not to be pedantic, but he actually doesn’t say “He promises better cleaning time”.. he says that cleaning time becomes more fun..
Cool project though. Geek out!
Not bad, seeing it in action makes me wonder if there’d be a way make a spinning LED display on top to make the animation a little more full and fluid, and whether it’d be viable, i.e. able to spin fast enough, and not affect the travel of the Roomba.
That is a good idea , I think it must be looks more wonderful , if the LEDs were yellow!
