DOOMBA is a recent script written by programmer and designer Rich Whitehouse for his model, image, and animation converting program Noesis that allows you to create playable Doom maps from the data collected by your Roomba. You can read a lot more about the process and even download the Noesis program yourself at Rich's website HERE if you're interested in experimenting with it yourself. Alternatively, you could just be happy your floor is clean now.

Thanks to hairless, who agree they need to make a Roomba slim enough to fit under doors so it can clean the whole house without having to risk my cats pooping under the bed again (how is that even comfortable?).

    Does it place lava in the room in relation to the dog shit the Roomba ran over and streaked all over the room/house?

    1960s : I guess we'll have flying cars in the future
    2019 : Let me generate some video game maps from the data collected by your automated vacuum cleaner.

    Flying cars were pretty much always a stupid idea. If you have unlimited energy it's not a problem but unlimited energy is also a stupid idea since energy cannot be created or destroyed.

  • A helicopter with wheels... A plane! Those are useful, but for individuals a motorized parachute is more efficient.

    It wouldn't be much of a DOOM map if my Roomba does what it usually does and b-lines for the sofa and gets stuck under it.
