Maker Faire: Bug Bots

Make’s weblog has an article about the Microsoft bug bots.

They were really quite cool. I got some great macros of ’em.

Update: They are called “photovores” and Zayne’s Dad was kind enough to post a link to an awesome do it yourself guide to building one. I really like the freeform construction technique. All the components are hot glued together, using their leads and the circuit itself to provide structural integrity.
