Introduction: Avoider MouseBot

Have a broken mouse? or an old/unuse mouse? Then Lets make robot :)

This simple mouse robot that is capable of avoiding obstacle by using scrap materials like an old mouse. It is just using SPDT(Single pole double throw) microswitches w/ lever for reversing the motor/battery polarity.

Step 1: Parts

Picture of Parts

*an old mouse

*2--- (1.5-5v)dc motor.


*2 ---1.5v AA battery(you can use any battery or higher volts to speed up the motor)
