Moon Walker Robot Kit

robosapien_programmable_robotMoon Walker II has combined the technology of two sensors. It begins to walk when it detects a change in light intensity or sound commands. Moon Walker II continues it’s four legged voyage until instructed by an internal timer to stop. This kit presents an engaging opportunity to learn about some of the mechanics, operation and history of robots.

When assembled, this robot uses a phototransistor to sense changes in light (such as turning on a lamp) and a condenser microphone to sense changes in sound (such as clapping). It converts those stimuli into electronic signals to power a motor. The sensitivity of the sensors is adjustable.

Specifications: Movement: 4 legs powered by crankshafts. Sensors: sound and light. Power Source: “AA” x 1 (not included). Size: 5″ tall X 4″ diameter. Power: About 210mA.
