What do you get when you have a bunch of Roombas (Robotic vacuum cleaners), a long exposure camera, and perhaps some extra time on your hands? – Artwork.
And the Yahoo Roomba Art Group are putting up some seriously cool pics on flickr. Who would have thought you can create striking works of art and clean the living room floor at the same time? Technology opens yet another door to new possibilities. If you feel so inclined and have a Roomba, dim the lights, fix an LED, and watch the brush strokes appear on the canvas. I don’t know if the robots are inspired by beautiful artwork, but looking at these pictures, it’s hard for us humans to not be.
