Turtlebot with MacBook Air

Turtlebot was powered up for the first time today. In contrast to the original Turtlebot, it has an Macbook Air instead of an Asus Netbook 1215N.

At the moment ROS is installed on a virtual Ubuntu machine on top of Mac OS X. This will change when i have everything up and running under Mac OS X.

iRobot Roomba 555

I now own an iRobot Roomba 555. After the first cleaning sessions, i am surprised how clean the Roomba has left the room(s). No more manual hovering! We will see how durable this little thing will be. After the first sessions you can see a lot of dust on many parts.
