This Roomba screams when it bumps into stuff
When you hit your pinky toe while walking around the house, screams and swear words come naturally. A YouTuber has successfully built that capability into a Roomba so you can call it your friend.

When you hit your pinky toe while walking around the house, screams and swear words come naturally. A YouTuber has successfully built that capability into a Roomba so you can call it your friend.

YouTuber Michael Reeves explains in his video how he modified a house cleaning Roomba to make it scream or swear whenever it bumps into stuff. Reeves added touch sensors which detect collisions and play sound from the Bluetooth speaker.

Given that a Roomba's job is to reach difficult places to clean, obviously, the screams are aplenty which is fun for those who know, and plain scary for the visitors.
