Project Fodder

Found at yard sales today:
  • inkjet printer (which I've already stripped down for motors, etc.): $2
  • flatbed scanner (should contain some nice stepper motors for possible CNC project(s)): $5
And the big score:
  • an old Roomba, complete with docking station, remote control, and invisible barriers!  $20.
Apparently there's a huge Roomba hacking community.  That site (and the book it is based upon) is written by the same guy that did this tech demo for an Arduino-based MIDI drumset, upon which the Electric Funkatron is based.
