So, I came across a neat article on Hackaday about a guy who did his own ocean-suitable ROV (http://uzzors2k.4hv.org/index.php?page=rovnokken) and thought I'd share it as well as start a thread for robot creators and lovers.

Personally, I've worked on some underwater ROVs back in high school (won a contest to name WHOI's hybrid ROV Nereus). Right now, I'm working on trying to hook up my Roomba with a Kinect and create a little "pet" program so that it'll follow people around in the house and be "pet"-like. Also thinking about trying to see if I can get it to detect cords so that it doesn't endlessly run them over since I'm too cheap to buy enough Virtual Walls. Hopefully now that I'm done doing my big operating system project, I'll actually get some work done on that project ^^

So, anyone else playing around with creating robotic overlords (or have any neat pet like behaviors I should stuff in the Roomba?)?
