Robotics Chat and Cool Videos Thread - No bots need apply!

Thought I'd start a thread for generally chat on robotics and everything else.

They not cheap new are they!
I have seen second ones on sale for 60 euro

Seen some cheap arduino homemade ones on youtube using a pc fan to suck dust
I don;t think that will work very well.

Any ideas for a practical robot design?

like a vacuum cleaner robot or cleaner or something that would actually be useful
as opposed to a toy.

I'm sure you could use a Pi or Arduino with a step up motor for more power. Would you not Google a few plans for an inexpensive hoover, even something that can navigate around a room that you could modify?
