Hacked Roomba Can Google Your House

Some Swedish hackers have made this (they call it the ‘GåågleBot’) which is made from a Roomba vacuum cleaner with a webcam and webserver on board. As it cleans your house, it extracts text data from all the images it takes which are uploaded to a searchable web interface. Basically, it indexes your house so you can then use it to search for books, movies, even lost keys – as long as they have a label on them.
