Engineer Transforms a Roomba Cleaning Robot into a Machine that Creates Abstract Splatter Paintings

A Japanese engineer, who goes by the name HYdeJII, hijacked his Roomba cleaning robot and transformed it into a self-generated painting machine that creates beautiful abstract masterpieces using multiple colors.
