Android app for hacked robot vacuum

I tried the third party Android app for my IoT hacked robot vacuum and I really like it.

Thank you the german hackers and of course LG that uses linux!

Here are some pics from alfa release.

If you want to try the app, look at my previous blog post: LG Hom Bot Square Wi-Fi mod

LG Hom Bot Square now with Wi-Fi :-)

This is a very nice Internet Of Things modification to the LG robot vacuum!

After completing the guide here: 
http://www.robvanhamersveld.nl/2015/03/13/lg-hombot-3-wifi-mod/ I went to the german robot hacking forums where I found out that they also made an Android APP. Will have to download the APK and maybe the source too.

This is how the robot views the world!

The Android APP can be downloaded from here: https://github.com/rampage128/hombot-control/releases/

This is what a robot map looks like
