GåågleBot: The Home Crawler


Sun, Mar 7th, 2010 11:05 by capnasty NEWS

GåågleBot (pronounced /google-bot/) is a "home crawler" consisting of a vacuum roomba with an on board webserver and camera. While the vacuum goes about its business, it extracts text from the images it takes. The text is later put in a database on the roomba and searchable through a web interface.
