Vibrobot sports adjustable nose-pot

From the MAKE: Flickr pool

Flickr member mskogly built this long-legged vibrobot complete with potentiometer nose –

Made this cute litle vibrobot today, with some spare parts. Got inspired by an old Makezine article, and decided to smack it together.

It turned out pretty cool actually, I made the potentiometer its nose, so when you twist the nose you regulate the speed of the motor.

Cool – add a couple of antlers and it may just take flight! – Creating a vibrobot with 9v battery, motor, and potentiometer
