ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
[Video Link] David and his son Lux built this Vibrobot, featured in Make: Projects. It's the best one I've come across!
Thanks to Mark for providing the scavenged motor!
My son (5) says it’s a robot mouse and next he’d like to build a robot cat to chase it around.
I think that’s a fine idea.
I know I’m kind of a jerk for saying this, but a motor in series with a battery hardly strikes me as robotlike. If you had some control and feedback, a la light seeking mousebot, you could make an argument, but this is ridiculous.
Best laugh I’ve had all day. And also, did I hear correctly that David’s son’s name is Lux? If so, I like him even more now.
And awesome robot building, chaps!
This is the best reply in the history of ever. Can we get you to post to other comment threads as well? Do you do requests?
Fun… but not a robot. Norbert Wiener says you are a dick.
A strong argument.

Zhi Zheng, Hongchuan Zhao and Dongbai Song from China won Evolo magazine's 2012 Skyscraper design competition. My favorite, however, is the runner-up (above) which crawls up the side of the Yunnan mountains.
On Monday, I was shooting some video in San Francisco with my friend Lessley Anderson of CHOW and she spotted this card for a late night whipped cream supplies delivery service.
Judy Fox's "Octopus" is an awfully lovely piece -- it's repped by LA's Ace Gallery.
