Introduction: How to Make a Cockroack Robot

About: I'm a student of mechanical engineering at Aalborg university in Denmark. I absolutely love to tinker with electronics and mechanics, and thus much of my spare time is spent on hobby robotics and 3D printers. …

Here is a nice little project that enyone can do in less then 30 minutes
its cheap, easy, fast and funny
and it can be done using only 5$

    hey thanks

    It is not really a beetle robot but a battery powered photopper design.
    http://www.solarbotics.com/products/k_pp/

    He makes a sort circuit of the opposite motor, wich is not really efficient design since the motor was to try to push it way out.

    It will get stuck 95% of the time.
