This robot is one of fourteen robots that can be built from the educational toy kit. Each one is solar powered. The one shown in the pictures is called Dog-Bot. The other thirteen robots that you can build include: Surf-Bot, Boat-Bot, Wheel-Bot, Walker-Bot, Crab-Bot, Slither-Bot, Beetle-Bot, Turtle-Bot, Auto-Bot, Row-Bot, Zombie-Bot, Roly Poly-Bot and Quadru-Bot. Each robot uses the same gear-box, solar panel and head: the body, limbs and means of movement differs. Some float on water, some use wheels and some walk on legs.
Let’s make a solar powered robot dog! This educational construction kit for kids features a small motor and a tiny solar panel. Once complete you’ve got yourself a green energy toy that’s powered by the sun and doesn’t need batteries. Making the body of the robot dog with all the tiny plastic gears was a little fiddly but with a bit of patience we got there in the end.
If you watch until the end you’ll be treated to some bonus footage of a ‘real dog’. Enjoy!
