DOOMBA Creates Doom Maps Using Your Roomba

 |  |  |  |  January 21, 2019

Are you a DOOM fan? Of course, you are. Do you own a Roomba? Of course, you do. Now you can combine two of your favorite things into one new cool thing. DOOMBA is a script written by programmer and designer Rich Whitehouse for his 3D model and animation conversion program Noesis that allows you to create playable Doom maps from the data collected by your Roomba. How cool is that?

Now your little robot vacuum cleaner is helping you in a whole new way.  Now we just need to be able to put our Roomba in the actual map that it generates so that it can play a fun game of DOOM while we watch.

I’m eagerly awaiting that Black Mirror episode. Mostly because I can’t wait to see a gun-toting Roomba going crazy on some demons. Actually, I’d like to see that turned into a product. A robot that cleans my floor and secures my home? Hell yeah! Now that’s a DOOMBA. It would be the best security guard ever.

You can read more about the process and download the program from Rich’s website HERE if you’re interested in trying DOOMBA out for yourself.
