This isn't about flying robots, but it's cool all the same. A 30-minute long exposure of a Roomba cleaning a room, as seen by the track of the central LED. What's interesting is that although its movements are essentially random, it looks like it didn't miss anything (those gaps are less than a Roomba-width apart). From Gizmodo.

I wonder if it logged the width when it did the spiral.?
