Pacmba Chomps Down


What do you get when you cross a Roomba with Pac-man? In Ron Tajima’s case, you get a Pacmba (don’t ask us how to pronounce it.) He took his droid vacuum, tacked on a board with 448 LEDs, and added a Bluetooth remote with circuit driver. Of course, he had to have something for the little guy to chomp on. This is Ron’s second foray into hacking his Roomba. We cannot wait to see what he will come up with next.

WOW, that was amazing :D
Parallax.com also has something similar, but this one is amazing!

However, you could buy this stuff (Leds, Board) from Parrallax.com.

Wow that was pretty ####### cool right there.Damn ghosts, so used to hearing that noise in pacman but its an addictive game so I always come back for more. anyways nice modification and i one day hope i can make something like that.

Probably the most clever idea ever made!

I used to play Pacman.Nice to hear about the modification or upgradation.

hahha, awesome. I’d be cool if there are other roombas as the ghosts…. and the pacmba have to hit them with it’s bumper to diable the ghosts.

Now he needs to make a Ms. Packman mod. When they were done cleaning, they could go off in the dark together and .....eat bonus fruit….what were you thinking? Not!

I dropped many quarters playing those games. Fun times, long ago.

Wow this guy is so creative!  I honestly would not have thought about turning a roomba into a pacman but it is really entertaining to watch!

This is very cool. I’ll bet it would scare the crap out of the family pet. Wish I knew more about electronics to try this myself.

I’ve seen a lot of roomba’s that have been hacked, they’re very customizeable!  For robot freaks it’s a must have device.  It would have been interesting if Ron actually used more Roomba’s, made a maze, and actually simulated the whole pacman game.  That would take a lot more effort though, but it would definitely bring a lot more views to his video.

thats hilarious! it kida reminds me of the types of things i do to the electronics in my house =D
except half the time they just break
