VCR Robot Wars.

This little desktop gadget is a really fun and cool thing to do to entertain yourself when you are bored.

The VCR Robot Wars is, as you may have guessed, made out of an old VCR.The actual robots themselves are made using some various part from the internals of the VCR. The 2 robots are attached onto the pulleys on the inside, which when you turn a cog at the back, the robots turn opposite ways and fight each other!

(Check out the 3rd and 4th pictures for a view of the mechanism of how the pulley turns the robots)
