3 laws of Homemade Robotics

  1. A robot will work perfectly until you try and show it to someone.
  2. A robot will spin in a circle unless you triple check the motor connections before soldering, except when doing so would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robot will interpret its code as it sees fit, the designer must change his goals to reflect this, except when doing so would conflict with the First or Second Law.

Co-Robot kit
This little robot is tough! Run by a single motor, he walks with a decidedly “angry” pace. If he falls over, he picks himself up again! An awesome design with an amazing gear mechanism, he will not quit! Over 50,000 sold in Japan and a hit at the International Robot Exhibition earlier this year. Instructions are in Japanese but  features highly detailed assembly pictures.

This was a fun contest, thank you to everyone who entered – we will do this again!
