Check out these simple little “bots” you can make using a paint roller a some fairly easy to obtain/assemble parts, great project for kids (and adults)… Paul writes – “The Roller-Bot I is a small dumb light activated robot built on a paint roller and can be activated by a flashlight. It is part of my personal interest in “minimal engineering” and the notion of inspiring young minds by the application or unusual or unorodox materials in an exhibition type design. Roller-Bot I itself, unuder normal operation, is activated by an ordinary flashlight and will move in 10-foot diameter circle.” [via] – Link.
