Want to build a little friend to buzz around your desk? Join us!
Have you ever heard of a Bristlebot? Basically, you take the head of a toothbrush and add a few electronics bits to make a tiny robot that buzzes around aimlessly. They make great projects for kids or nice conversation pieces for your desk.
Which is why, on March 24, 2015 at 3 p.m. MT, we're going air an episode of "SparkFun Live!" showing you how to put together your own bristlebot! SparkFun Mechanical Engineer Evan will be your host and guide you through the project.
If you want to follow along, here is a wish list with all the required parts (with the exception of a toothbrush - you'll need to pick one up):
We hope you'll join us for this fun project! See you then!
This one like all the previous live events are available on youtube, heres the link to the playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBcrWxTa5CS2y1bH4gyFwN9CSyCQaK9h9
Looks fun but can we get more than a week notice on live events so we have time to order the parts if we want to follow along live.
Here is another idea I have just had lots of fun building with elementary kids: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Build-a-Robot-The-BeetleBot-v2-Revisite/
Once again, no fracking way for me to view this. I and many like me simply cannot stop work during the day to watch a video presentation. Why is there no way to down-load the video?
