Do you want a pet for your home, and you don't like puppies or cats? I made a beetle using a purple plastic case and pieces of dead computers. The legs are from the frame of a PC screen filter. For the movement, I use a toy motor with gear box.

The eye is a red LED inside a roll-on deodorant ball.

the robot kinda looks like a dalek beetle thing
you should put rubber on the feet so it will go straight and make an instructable for it <br>
man the video won't load on my computer...... and can u make a instructable?
Congrats....Say cheeeeeeez....enjoy your prize.
Thank you very much Mr. Sanchez!!!! :-)
how to make it give that with circuit diagram <br>with proper explanation i am grade 5
there are a lot of tutorials like this, explore! just be prepared for hundreds of dollars of components for some, and really heafty diagrams.
Is it me or does it look like more of a blue?
Nop. It's purple.
it looks like a dalek head
Te felicito esto es puro talento COLOMBIANO !!!
Muchas gracias JossiEsteban!!! :-) De d&oacute;nde eres?
wow it walks sideways
ok then does it have any extra fetures
It lights its eye and it's creepy... :-P
It is purple, does that count? It also lights up<br> <br> <br> <sub><sub><sub><sub><sub>It also can fly, but that's for another instructable...</sub></sub></sub></sub> </sub>
ok that counts
gee, you robots are really cool. <br>how many do you have?
I have built 150, more or less... I think more.
Teach it to scream &quot;EXTERMINATE!&quot; at people and it might aspire to grow up to be a Dalek.
I love the idea!
This is awesome!
Thanks Splazem!! :-)
If you put some rubber erasers on the bottom of the leg, it should move better! 5*
Nop, it doesn't work with those mechanism. I made the experiment. Thanks!<br><br>http://www.instructables.com/id/The-attack-of-the-ALIEN-MUTANT-ROBOT-SUGRU/step8/The-thing-with-the-Sugru-grip-in-the-legs/

Thanks Neologik! It would be fun, but some of them are away... I sold them.

Nice, but in the video the sound it makes when it moves sounds kinda annoying =D
Thanks Aug!!
