First year in university we had to program a robot to go through a cardbox maze using ultrasonic sensors it had. Very fun project, except the bots were a bit easily damaged so the code had todeal with that too.
The Roomba is the ultimate hobby edition of it, I'm not too surprised by the capabilities since we had about 4 or 2 MB of RAM (and no HD) to work with. and I'm sure the roomba has lots more.
Only things in the Internet connection, I know it's the easiest to work with an app, but meh, I like robots to be as hack-proof possible and especially ones that knows my house and has a camera.
