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

Teach it to scream "EXTERMINATE!" at people and it might aspire to grow up to be a Dalek.
M.C. Langer (author)  mrgryphon3 years ago
I love the idea!

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!

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