Name: MiniBall Circuit Type: SolarEngine

This clever little ball was invented by Richard Weait. It really is quite amazing( I would strongly suggest you make one )

Name: AnnoyYa Circuit type: Direct connection from solar cell to happy birthday singer

This THING sits and plays music over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over. I think you get it, anyway its just a solar cell connected to a happy birthday card sound module. It'll play even when turned upside down.

Images..... Name: AquaBot 1 Circuit type: Solar Engine

This is uncompleted project I hope to have it done soon. Description at....

Name: Ian Bernstein Circuit type: Neural Network A humanoid robot built 15 or 16 years ago.
Name: RJP ( Robot Jurassic Park ) This was recently built. I wonder why it took me three years to get around to it. If you have more than two photovores I would HIGHLY recommend you make one. :-)
This is where the magic takes place!

My basic tools are...

Soldering station Power supply Small Electronics kit


Name: SYMET 2 Circuit type:  Solar Engine
This one uses 3 caps in parallel ( 1000uF, 3300uF, 470uF ). It moves pretty fast under a 60W bulb ( It's snowing outside ). I can't wait till the sun comes out and I can see it in action. The motor is an old walkman motor that I had.

Name: Spinner Circuit type: Solar Engine This is the result of an idea for a solar bot that could be put in a car. What it dose is charge up and then release the charge spinning the robot. The shaft of the motor is connected to a brass wire that is connected to the review mirror of a car. This is one of my favorite bots. :-)
Name: Scooter This is a project I did with my electronics teacher. First we built the kit and then we looked back at the circuit and studied how it was working. What it does is when the noise level reaches a certain point the bot backs up, turns and then keeps going. Whats cool is that the mic. it out in front of the bot so when it hits an object the sound created triggers the bot to back up.
Name: Line Bot Another one built with my teacher. It uses IR to detect where the line is and then turns. This one should be fairly easy to recreate with a bicore.
Name: Invisible Vision You guessed it another one. This one uses IR to detect objects, if an object is detected it turns and then continuous on it's way.
