Here are a few links that I’ve found to get me started on the Solar BEAM Robot project for Sustainable Energy. I am thinking of making something that is nocturnal, meaning it stores up energy from the sun during the day, and releases it at night, usually as light, but possibly as sound. The BEAM robot term for this is a “Pummer,” and a common circuit can be found here. I also have an idea to make some sort of winged creature, which flaps its “wings” every so often. I’m thinking I’ll need servos for each wing (since they’ll be moving in opposite directions). Or I would like to experiment with electromagnets.
I love Bjorn Shulke’s work, and am curious how he makes his circuits. It’s also amazing what a little white paint will do to turn a “robot” into “art.”
