Not just anyone can perform surgery. It takes decades of schooling and years of experience to become a surgeon. Fortunately, most anyone can not only play operation, but build their own custom operation game. In this way you can practice removing unnecessary bits from whatever sentient life-form you wish. You may not get a surgical license for this, but you will surely have a better time than attending medical school.

Step 1: Go get stuff

You will need:

- 4 "AA" Battery Holder (Model: 270-391 | Catalog #: 270-391)
- (x2) Red LED with Holder (Model: 276-084 | Catalog #: 276-084)
- 75dB Piezo Electric Buzzer (Model: 273-054 | Catalog #: 273-054)
- 220 ohm 1/4W 5% Carbon Film Resistor (Model: 271-1313 | Catalog #: 271-1313)
- Enercell® "AA" Alkaline Batteries (4-Pack) (Model: AA-4PK | Catalog #: 23-849)
- Robot operation template (see attached)
- Operation pieces
- (x4) 1/4" x 1-1/14" bolts with nuts
- (x4) Washers
- (x4) Rubber bolt covers
- 11 x 17 mat board.
- Aluminum foil
- Two zip ties
Can you do it without the screws?
I'm a bit confused on the circuitry...do you have a schematic I could follow?
Wire from bolt --&gt; Positive 4.5V <br> <br>Positive wires from LEDs --&gt; one side of resistor <br> <br>Positive wires from buzzer &amp; wire from tweezers --&gt; other side of resistor <br> <br>All ground wires --&gt; Just connect them all together. <br> <br>When the tweezers touch the foil, it connects the bolt wire and the tweezer wire, sending electricity through the resistor and into the LED and buzzer. <br> <br>Hope this helps. <br> <br>Adam
The attached .eps file is just an outline, not an actual colored robot. And where do you get the operation pieces? <br> <br>Great job on the instructable! <br> <br>Adam
Awesome! Will be making this soon!
This might be a good starting point for a PICAXE project. Each opening could be isolated and connected to a different input. You could then program the PICAXE to keep scores for Player 1 and 2, or you could make the game harder by telling the player which item they must lift next. <br> <br>I might use this idea with my students. They can bring in the old nokia ringtone tunes, their choice of patient etc. Very cool! <br> <br>All the software can be developed as flowcharts.
