Title: [Entry] Bug shaped ornament
Post by: t0mpr1c3 on October 29, 2012, 02:36:51 am
Alright... definitely my last entry! This robot is supposed to move autonomously with phototaxis, but after a couple of years on the window sill it seems to have permanently retired. The pager motors were always underpowered, if I'm honest. The logic component is a 74AC240 octal inverting buffer used BEAM-style as both sensor and motor driver.
