Slackbot Bot

Meet your new office assistant

##Slackbot IRL redpepper loves [Slack](https://slack.com/). It's changed how our company works, how our teams collaborate and how we get things done. We use integrations and connections into Slack to help us automate things and find useful shortcuts to being more productive. One of our favorite features is the **Slackbot**, a robot that Slack provides to help with basic functionality inside their app. We decided to make Slackbot come to life. "Slackbot Bot" is a hi-tech robot that helps out with important office tasks around the office. He's controlled via Slack commands, which send wireless control signals to an [Arduino](https://www.arduino.cc/) and [Raspberry Pi](https://www.adafruit.com/products/998) running Node.js. He's got a text-to-speech dictation and a tornado siren, plus a mobile beacon of his own to help him navigate. ![Slackbot bot](https://laughingsquid.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/slackbotbot-highfive.jpg) ![Slackbot bot](https://laughingsquid.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/slackbotbot-highfive2.jpg) See what [TechCrunch](https://techcrunch.com/2015/01/20/slackbot-bot-turns-a-roomba-and-a-tornado-siren-into-a-wonky-little-robot-that-djs-and-gives-high-fives/), [Laughing Squid](http://laughingsquid.com/the-slackbot-bot-a-robot-that-physically-delivers-messages-via-text-commands-in-the-slack-application/), and [SlashGear](http://www.slashgear.com/slackbot-bot-is-a-robot-crafted-from-a-roomba-and-tornado-siren-20365463/) are saying about our favorite office friend.
