Step 13: Create head unit

Tape the head by wrapping around one lead first and then around the whole head.
Press down on center.
Slide the heat shrink tubing unto the head and straighten any bent leads
GENTLY apply the heat shrink by heating with heat gun or lighter.
Do not shrink this one too much

Optional: Use arm mounted high energy disruptor beams if available

 never take apart anything with ray tubes(ie: tv's or monitors)  They hold charges for a very, very, very long time; so it is easy to get the shock of your life if you mess with one. Leave that to professional TV repairmen.
<p>no unless your messing with the ray tube there shouldnt be a problem if youre worried use insulated screwdrivers and wear gloves</p>

Cool! Now you just need a little piece of muscle wire to make them wiggle! You can get a meter of wire for under $20 - that should be enough for at least a dozen of these little guys.

Sorry if this was answered or a lame question but do you have an approximate lifespan on one of these robots (err, the batter rather)
Woot! Battery man! Lol make like 20 of them and put them on a usb cord for an awesome decoration! :-D nice one!
Wow thats is seriously cool. Keep up the good work. I might suggest it to the new instructazine collaboration if you don't mind. Although it might be quite long till the instructazine gets completed, as most of us is at work or school :/ . So do you mind if there is a possibility that your work gets used in the instructazine magazine?
That would be Cool! :)
Aww, that's adorable. I'd like a swarm of these dudes.
Excellent instructable, laid out well enough that even a klutz like me could follow it. I wish others went through as much effort to create as complete an article as you did.
cool these would be fun to make itd be cool to have a army of em and dress em up in mini camo with mini guns
