Step 1: Get all the materials needed!

Picture of get all the materials needed!
ok so get all these.i got them mostly from broken toys,i'm sure you can find them at radioshack.

- a AA battery holder -> holding the batteries
- some solder wire -> soldering
- some wires -> connecting motor to switch,to batteries
- 2 AA batteries -> powering the motor
- 2 1.5V motors (preferably identical) -> making the robot move
- a slide switch -> ON,OFF
- 2 SPDT (Single Pole Double Throw) switches -> used for antenna
- 1-2 paperclips -> glue on the antennae so it is longer
- some glue sticks -> use with the hot glue gun

Step 2: Get all the tools needed!

i borrowed all the tools from my father,once again,they should be available at radioshack

- wire cutter and stripper ->cut wires and strip them
- pliers ->shape the antennas
- hot glue gun -> glue the switch and the SPDT switches on the battery holder
- a soldering iron -> solder and connect wires together
- a multimeter -> check the battery

Step 3: So,let's get started!

check the battery's power - =D

if its' on <<good>> use it

if it's on <<bad>> change it (in my case,regharge it)

Step 7: The antennae,part 3

cut the antenna with something pointy =)

I used the wire cutter/stripper

you will now have 2 small lines...

Step 8: The antennae,part 4

with the pliers,bend each line like in the photo

try to make them identical by putting one on top of the other or bending them together

I am a beginner and I have started to do this. Now I am collecting the stuff can u tell me that are the motors will be operated by a remote or not.
Nope - this robot looks like no remote is necessary - the diagram on step 15 explains it - the two tiny switches that the antennae are connected to control the direction of the motors, so the robot is completely automatic. It will roll around the floor until it bumps things and spin around to go somewhere else - pretty much until the batteries die.
