Make a Solar Engine

Ssolar1How to make the engine usually found in the BEAM solar roller“…the most common use is in a solaroller which is a small wheeled car that charges up and then moves in a quick burst of speed. Since you can only use motors and coils with this circuit robots built with this circuit are mainly mechanical such as my artistic butterflies. One other common use is a little thing called a symet which can roam around and not get stuck using only one motor.” Link.

    Great idea! I do have a few questions though. Do you use the RCX brick to control the dice rolling machine? And if so how do you get .net programming to talk to the RCX brick? Thanks.
