• Capable of covering 1 meter in less than 2 minutes!
• Includes light-sensing directional optics (eyes), and a pair of obstacle avoidance sensors
• Powered entirely by solar energy
• Assembly and soldering required
The Solarbotics Photopopper Photovore utilizes very small high-efficiency motors in combination with elegant circuitry to make a very active solar powered robot.
The pair of infrared detectors on the robot give it a very directed phototropic or light-seeking behaviour, making it trace outlines around shadows, and be attracted to the brightest sources of light.
The solarbotics Photopopper Photovore 5.0 uses new "MillerEngine" technology to make a very dynamic light-seeking & obstacle-avoiding robot. All components necessary for the Photopopper are in the kit, including a high-quality printed circuit board, optics, motors, and a very complete 12 page instruction manual with over 26 illustrations and images.
The BEAM Photopopper Photovore kit is designed to be a straight-forward kit to assemble and tune, but does require fundamental soldering skills and hand-tool abilities to complete successfully.
