Step 1: Supplies
I found an empty xerox paper box and grabbed,
- X-Acto Knife
- Cutting Mat
- Hot Glue Gun
- Quarter ($0.25)
- Cardboard from the box
I started by tracing out the diameter of the SpheroMini shell to make a stencil for measuring the width of the paths for the maze. If you have access to a 3D printer that makes a better stencil. Or you could just use half of the SpheroMini's shell. I just like to make stuff.
For the traps, I found that a quarter was the perfect diameter to make the traps with.
Step 2: Start Cutting
With a ruler start measuring 1/4inch strips of cardboard and carefully start cutting some long strips.
Next, fire up the hot glue gun and proceed to create your maze.
Step 3: Designing Your Maze
Using the quarter, trace out circles for your traps where needed. Use your stencil to create the width of the path to navigate through your maze..
Step 4: Completing the Maze
Now that you've finished your maze, take it for a spin.
Step 5: Play and Have FUN!!!
Use Sphero EDU to program the SpheroMini to navigate the maze. Or just use the app for it's gyroscopic sensor to have that virtual maze experience.
