Simian scarebots

"Consider his plan to build a simian scare- bot: "I got this robot monkey head at Sharper Image and I wanted to do something real cool with it," he said. So Torrone plans to mount the head on top of a Roomba [a robotic vaccuum cleaner: manbitesmonkey] and write software to control the contraption.

"The Roomba will go around and when it gets to its destination, the monkey head starts to scream," he said."
