7400 competition entry: Bug shaped robot

Here’s a bug shaped robot entered into the open 7400 competition. Power by a solar panel, this 7400 logic based robot moves toward the life giving light source.

Powered by a solar panel, this miniature robot shuffles towards the light.  This project was a venture into BEAM robotics, a now seemingly defunct genre characterized by simple circuits with complex behavior. This autonomous, bug-shaped beast soaks up sunshine on its solar panel and converts it to bursts of movement on its tiny motors.

Build something that uses or abuses a logic chip and get amazing boards, tools, and other swag. The Open 7400 Logic Competition promotes awareness of the basic building blocks of modern circuits. Devious geeks ignited the computer revolution with discrete logic computers, what can you do? Details and entry form here.
