Step 3: The Smoker

The Smoker uses much the same construction as "The Headbanger". I tried to avoid the soft legs and gave him legs that are made of springs that I got from old floppy disc drives. When I was finished and switched him one he just turned around, he did not move. The legs where to "equal". To make him move I made the legs different by attaching some rubber and a wheel.
I did not use a Goldap here but a 3V button cell battery that I took from an old pc mainboard, including the battery holder.
On his nice cloak he got some fluorescent pieces ... sadly this can not be seen on the video ...
On the top of his head he has what we call "Räucherhütchen" in German. I don't know what this is calle d in English, maybe one of you can help me.
Sadly also the smoke cannot be seen on the video and it is really loss that videos don't smell :-)

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...
