HOW TO – Build BEAM Vibrobots
Gareth writes –
“I posted another how-to on Street Tech related to my MAKE BEAM articles. This one is on Vibrobots, a type of solar-powered bot that gets around by using pager (or other DC) motors that have vibration weights on their shafts. The control circuit is the same one I talk about in my BEAM articles in MAKE Vol. 6 and the Vibrobots I feature are built by Zach Debord, the guy who made the Pummers pictured in my Pummers article in Vol. 8.” – Link.
