Make yourself a “Gåågle” robot out of your Roomba

“GåågleBot (pronounced /google-bot/) is a “home crawler” consisting of a vacuum roomba with an on board webserver and camera. While the vacuum goes about its business, it extracts text from the images it takes. The text is later put in a database on the roomba and searchable through a web interface. To try it out, click here.

The name Gåågle Bot is a play on the words gå and google bot. The Swedish word for go is gå. Googlebot, is the name of Google’s web indexer. If you don’t know what Google is, you are either lying or out of luck.

Hence Gåågle Bot is a “going” indexer, indexing the real world around us while vacuuming your home at the same time! Can’t find that library book that is due tomorrow? Relax, just gåågle it!”
