Where can I get motors like that?????
peterjacob (author)  fluffyevan4 years ago
most electronics' stores

like www.MUTR.co.uk

good luck! :)
you know this formula e = mc2 if you know reply me peter jacob.

E=energy=mc^2=m(c*c) yes, i know that formula :)

peterjacob (author)  elenwaren5 years ago
i did :) but the beetlebot is briliant too! NOTE: i didnt know about the beetlebot from "Make:" untill after i made my cockroach and i dont know which one was invened first. but i did NOT steal any ideas from anyone.

 is it possible to make it remote control?

i got that song

well done, although it is a close copy to the beatle bug...


if you did copy it, try not to next time.
hey thanks

It is not really a beetle robot but a battery powered photopper design.

He makes a sort circuit of the opposite motor, wich is not really efficient design since the motor was to try to push it way out.

It will get stuck 95% of the time.
peterjacob (author)  TXTCLA556 years ago
lol many peaple ask me that... but i didnt coby it... it is an OLD video i posted even before i knew the beetlebot, witch i think is an avesome design!
oh never mind then, sorry about that, :P

Check your spelling. (It should be SURE not SHURE) :)
Did you even watch the entire video, or did you just stop at the spelling error in the beginning?

This project was an ingenious design of a sentient, obstacle avoiding robot, without the use of any MCs, ICs, relays, or even sensors for that matter.

He should be applauded, not flamed.
Agreed, I was just pointing that out :P

peterjacob (author)  dragonface5 years ago
no, not at all
peterjacob (author)  mynameishamm5 years ago
yep! :)
I made one and it gos in circles because one motors faster would ading a resistor help????
it should
paintsniper6 years ago
also u should make a third connection from the battery to the motor so that one motor doesnt sto it just reverses otherwise good job cheers
paintsniper6 years ago
iv designd heaps of beam robots,battle robots and some weird robots and i think that its going two fast and it shouldnt break as often as urs does to eliminate that adjust theangle of the motors up and it will slow adjust them down it will speed up.ask me if u want to see my designs cheers
its too cool
do i really have to use guitar strings for the sensors, or can i just use regular wire? any reply will do t5hanks
peterjacob (author)  vpbotbuilder6 years ago
any bouncy/spring like wire will do!
OK, awesome. this will be my first robot so im going to make an instructable dedicated to it. thanks and keep up the good robots =D
Awesome! Really love it!
