How to Create a Doom Map of Your House Using a Roomba

DOOMBA mod allows your Roomba to create DOOM maps

DOOM's legacy isn't just through playing, but also through creating and now you can create DOOM maps using your Roomba. Once you're done tracking, you can convert the journey into a Doom-compatible map.

The name of the hack?

Rich Whitehouse, a game developer and designer, recently debuted Doomba, which uses Roomba 980 robot vacuums to create different levels of Doom, a first-person shooter video game, Polygon reported. You can then customize the number of weapons, enemies, and objects in the level. Perhaps you've even put the theory to the test with something like laser tag or Nerf guns but I'm willing to bet you've never taken it as far as Rich Whitehouse.

DOOMBA mod allows your Roomba to create DOOM maps

Called "Doomba", the script utilizes a Roomba's mapping functionality and Noesis - a tool Whitehouse created for previewing and converting between hundreds of model, image, and animation formats - to convert image data into a demonic level full of Hell's minions. Simultaneously, I would be able to unleash a truly awful pun to plague humankind. "I bring forth DOOMBA, a half-goat, half-script creature, with native binary backing for the expensive parts, to be offered in place of my firstborn on this fine Christmas Eve".

"Some will say that it's pointless, but I have faith in my heart that the Dark Lord will wipe these people from the face of the earth and trap them in a dimension of eternal hellfire", Whitehouse added. In other words, you can slay waves of demons in a Doom-ified version of your very own living room, which, to me, is dope as hell (pun absolutely fucking intended). Ostensibly this capability is used to create accurate maps of hazards in the cleaning area, but of course it did set off some privacy alarm bells when introduced due to the possibility that scans of users homes could end up being used for nefarious purposes. Once the device is finished, it will generate a DOOM map. Then, you can use the DOOMBA plugin.
