The prolific Maker fam’ – Thethompsonfive write in with the solarroller bot built from MAKE 06… – “Here it is, my completed Solarroller from Make #6. I got the parts bag from Solarbotics and scavenged a VCR from someone I work with. I’ve built a bunch of robot kits in the past, but I have to say that starting out with a pile of junk and some components and getting a working robot out of it brings a much greater sense of accomplishment than any of them ever did. “Link.
