The motion module is the most complex photocoupled device used in Simple Bots. It basically is a light switch coupled with a motion sensing nightlight. When someone in its general area moves, this triggers the sensor, turns on the light, and causes the bot to move. This is a simple way to start adding more complex behaviors to your bots and have them respond to their environment.

Step 1: Go get stuff

You will need:

- Motion sensitive nightlight (battery operated)
- Simple Light Switch
- Electrical tape
Beautiful description and photos (all of your stuff)... Hope you're proud of yourself... You've gone and got me interested in robotics.:)
