Here’s a quick video (1.8mb Quicktime) I shot in my kitchen of Mousey the JunkBot (Warning: I am teaching my dog to “get the robot” so you’ll hear that a lot). Mousey’s behavior is fittingly mouse- like. It scoots quickly across the floor, thanks to lively little motors. And when the critter crashes into anything, it speeds off in the opposite direction. If you want to learn more about building your own Mousey (a robot made from a mouse) here’s a PDF preview of what’s in issue 02 of MAKE.
