These bots are all dangerous!
They came over me with full force. I did not expect them to be this powerful. Hopefully they all lose their energy very soon ... ;-)

Step 1: What you need

It helps a lot if you own many many things that you got out of old electronic devices. I used motors from old XBOX gamepads to make the robots shake ... and move. I used old motors from useless floppy disk drives to build a the crawler.
out of old pc mainboards I got battery holders and 3V button batteries. Also LEDs or resistors could be sourced out of old electronic parts.
To make the radio controlled mover I bought a bunch of radio controlled mini cars. I got 27Mhz and 40Mhz cars so that I can guide two robots at the same time.
Holla,<br/><br/>the &quot;R&Atilde;&curren;ucherkerzen&quot; on top of the pumpkin head are called &quot;incense&quot;. The smoke of it is also called incense.<br/>(http://dict.leo.org/ende?search=Incense)<br/><br/>Bye,<br/>ReKa<br/>
Thank you for the information!
Today, I added a new step to show some new aspects, after the party ...
FRICKIN SWEET!! im makin "the crawler" as soon as i can i just need to buy some parts.....YAY!! so excited :P
Thank's a lot! But try to DON'T buy the parts ... Nearly everything I used I got out of old electronic devices. As you can see in the description ... some motors are from a XBOX gamepad. The crawler's motors are from old 3,5<em> floppy disc drives. I think you should be able to find some without the need to pay anything. </em><br/>The crawler is really easy to build ... but I think he is a little bit to brutal! He nearly broke my digicam!! :-)<br/>
lol i saw the digicam vid lol that was funny! enyway i think i'll buy them enyway because they need to be the same speed for maximum rideage plus i took apart everything i have that has a motor and used it ;( thanks for the cool instructable!!
Good reuse of old parts ,Very Cool! I do science projects with kids at my sons school and seldom buy anything new ...the district has a junk yard that has lots of old computers and other reusable treasures....now to find some pumpkin heads
I might not be able to sleep tonight... "Ah, what was that!"
i like the crawler...
