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 (solarbotics.net) or google "junkbot" for some inspiration. You can find any of the parts needs at surplus stores like us at reuseum.com.
