This weekend, make little teeny tiny robots called beambots that are powered by the sun! In the podcast, I made the solar-roller, and the instructions for that are right in the PDF!
I also made a beambot from a kit. Kits are always a good way to break into a genre of making. Both solarbotics**** and pagermotors**** have some nice kits for you to get started, including the one that I bought. If you get into it, make sure to pick up JunkBots, Bugbots, and Bots on Wheels, a book worth reading if you get into making little teeny tiny robots!
One of the great things about these little bots is that you can make them from scavenged materials. Use parts from broken electronics and bring them back to life as little robots!
We were testing out electrical system in our car and thought I'd be a good idea to put a camera inside the car. This video shows the University of Kentucky Solar Car Team's car operating off just solar cells and not the batteries, which is why the car kept "stalling" when we pushed it too hard or went into the shade. Other than that, the car worked perfectly. You may see us riding next to you on the roadways very soon.
