This is a video I found while surfing around on YouTube. I think a lot of our readers would have most of the parts needed to make it. If not, you can pick them up for a few bucks. It’s a cool little bot.

In the Maker Shed:
We’ve had several neat projects over the years, and we’re proud that Solarbotics has created a cool bundle kit to provide parts for completing them. In this great bundle you’ll find what you need to build the Mousey (Make Issue #02), Trimit (Issue #06), SolarRoller (Issue #06), and Beetlebot (#12). Get this bundle and save over $20 compared to buying these kits separately.
Please note: This kit includes the electronic components only, the build instructions and other parts needed for each project can be found in the corresponding Make issue (which are not included).
