Robot Roomba Pacman!


Retro gamer fans and super-genius-robot-programmers/nerds, Jack Elston, Cory Dixon, Maciej Stachura, Chris Eheim and Rob Witoff joined forces to bestow the joys of 4-bit gaming onto 5 little vacuum cleaner robots called “Roombas,” in a project they call Roomba Pacman.

In it, Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde autonomously chase the user-controlled Pacbot through a familiar maze filled with little paper dots that the hungry hero of the game must vacuum up. Power pellets reverse the roles of the chasers and the chased, just like in the real game.

What’s your favorite retro game?
