Make robots

Make robots
Use discarded electronics to make robots.
Get some creative use out of you old computer hardware and make something cool, like a junk robot. Take apart an old CD or DVD rom drive and take out the motors and with a couple more small electronic components you can build a cool little bot that can behave in some very interesting ways, like attract to light, fight its mechanical brethren, follow a line, or just go crazy.

Styles are listed in the BEAM robotics library ( or google "junkbot" for some inspiration. You can find any of the parts needs at surplus stores like us at
