Roomba Modded To Curse When It Runs Into Things

May 7, 2019

This is a video of the Roomba that Youtuber Michael Reeves modded to curse whenever it runs into something, then took to his local Target to do some test marketing on shoppers there. It goes over very well, and if somebody manufactured cursing Roomba mods and sold them on Etsy they could probably make a pretty penny. Maybe not as pretty as *pulling coin from pocket* this penny, but I only bend over the pick up the very finest. "That's a dime." And this one? "A beer bottle cap." What is that worth, like a buck? Because I know where to find a whole bunch of them. SPOILER: the bar -- let's go.

Keep going for the video, which should automatically start at 7:00 when the test marketing is happen, but feel free to watch before that if you have time to kill and really don't care how you kill it (there's also another test at 3:30).

Thanks again to K Diddie, who agrees it should also squirt blood.

    Listened to a random 2 seconds. Heard very loud male screaming with poor vocal tone. Not shiney.

  • I realize the kid in the video is likely going for humorous with his comments here, but were people actually complaining that their roomba needed to feel more human?

  • GeneralDisorder

    No. He builds shitty robots professionally similar to Simone Giertz or The Useless Duck Company. The whole point is "build weird shit". Like the time he built a full auto airsoft rig that shot him for losing health in Fortnite.

  • sizzlepants

    I watched 36 seconds of that nerd and in that time he compared himself to Steve Jobs, Jesus, Copernicus and Galileo.

    Because he figured out how to trigger a sound file with a button.

    It's also generally frowned upon (if not actually illegal) to film people in a public business without their knowledge or consent. But there's no way his ego can't be hampered by stupid human concerns.

  • Alessandro Schiassi

    You don't get sarcasm, do you? Check his channel, this kid is funny and smart. You sound neither of those things.

  • sizzlepants

    So which one of you is the nerd and which is the cameraman?

  • Alessandro Schiassi

    I don't work with them, you don't need to be involved to appreciate someone, unless you are a salty cunt. Are you?

  • JJtoob

    One, he's obviously doing a bit.
    Two, I've never heard of "frowned upon", but even if it was illegal, he could have gotten permission off camera, and we are not required to be told. This is only between the uploader and the people featured in the video.

  • KingCraigers

    Only some state actually require two party consent when it comes to recording. Plus there's also the filming in public spaces thing.

  • JJtoob

    Are places like the inside of Target considered a public space? But you are right, in one party consent states, he doesn't even need their permission.

  • Closet Nerd

    Oh shit!
