MAKE Instructable group member Leevonk shows how to make a cheap & easy solar powered robot – “Make a very cheap, relatively easy to construct robot which will wake up any time you shine a desk lamp on it. There are no sensors on it, although I suppose the solar panel can be called a sensor. I plan on adding solar panels and another motor, and making it controlled by a PIC microcontroller in the future.” – Link.
