Maker Workshop – Miniature Robots on Make: television

YouTube player

John Park builds some lively and inexpensive miniature robots. Starting with a simple vibrabot made from a scrub brush, John assembles a solar junkbot and a slightly more complex beetlebot, which has paper clip feelers attached to switches that allow it to respond to its environment. All it takes are a few common electronic components and some everyday objects and you can make an entertaining robot all your own.

    this is great, but the video says I can find the plans for the circuit on the web site. It’s a BIG website, and I don’t see it on the page with the video. Can someone point tell me how to find the circuit for the capacitor controlled bug? Thanks.
