Day 2: Squigglebot
Yesterday, after we posted in our blogs, we did projects that we didn’t get to blog about. Today, we have a chance to write about our experience yesterday.
We got to create a robot yesterday: the Squigglebot. We had a light up fan and four markers, so we cut off three blades of the fan (to make it lopsided) and strapped the markers to each corner, in the shape of a table. The result was a robot that drew wobbly lines on a large piece of paper. We called it Squigglebot. This bot is the concept behind a brush bot, a smaller version using a toothbrush and a pager motor. The Squigglebot was an excellent robot that showed that robots do not have to be complex.
