Android-controlled DJ Roomba dances its own beat [VIDEO]

I don’t have anything clever to say about this next video. I just know that when I went to Google I/O afterhours last night, which was a den of robotics and cool oddities, nothing grabbed my attention as much as the Android-controlled robots on display. Actually, I was more impressed by a group of high-school students who designed and manufactured soccer-playing bots, but this is an Android blog, so they don’t count.

Ok, enough rambling. Below is video of a robot controlled entirely by a Nexus One. Using a Bluetooth pairing, I was able to make a ghostly DJ Roomba dance across the room. Take a look at the video below.

P.S. when are we finally going to merge the best of both worlds and see Android-powered battle bots?
