Having your very own robot butler is finally possible! HUBOT from GitHub is an easy to setup and highly extensible automation assistant for your everyday needs. Use HUBOT to order food, grab directions, deploy code, and even open the door! Sure, he may take over the world someday, but in the meantime we might as well have some fun.
Hubot is written in coffeescript on Node.js and easily runs on Heroku and connects to many communication platforms including Campfire, HipChat, any XMPP server, and Twitter.
