The Roomba can keep your floors clean, but with a little setup, they can also make art across your living room. Some Roomba owners have use their robot vacuum cleaners, LEDs, and a camera set to take long-exposure photos to create robot-made light paintings.


If you dip your toe into the Roomba Art Flickr Pool, it's fascinating to see the variety of images people create with their Roombas. They use various colored lights and obstacles to create different effects—sometimes releasing swarms of Roombas with different colored LEDs all at once.
