Koen
Locations:
Whitespace

Fund raiser:

At the moment there's a Roomba 531 on sale in Hubo for €174 which seems a good deal. If some people put the money together we can get one for the space. So if you're willing to put down some money please add your name here:

Hack ideas

Please add any ideas of what to do here:

  • Make Roomba only clean when Pamela say's the space is closed.
  • UPnP stack (because what we currently have is still not broken enough)
  • Bring a bottle of Mate to a thirsty hacker.
  • MOAR LAZARS!!!
  • Let users online control it and clean the space
  • + camstream (Just in case we miss the poor spider passing by...Evidence!)
  • Make it play nyan.cat wile cleaning
  • Maybe we can use a R0cket from CCC Camp to be the brain and communication part.
