Having seen the Evil Mad Scientists' Snailbot, I knew I had to make one. I also thought all my friends should make them too, so we could have races. Last night I had a snailbot building party, and while we did not finish any bots, we did make some progress. Here's some pix of it - crappy phone pix, sorry, I could not find my "big" camera.

Anyway we're going to finish them next Wednesday and I'll post mo' better pictures then.

Update: Part 2!

    It's a kind of robot generally known as a bristlebot. The snail in particular was created by Lenore of Evil Mad Scientist, there's a link in the text that shows how to make it. Also search Instructables for 'bristlebot'.

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Really cool! I will try and make one. :-)
