Let's Make Robots!

Couple "First Robot" Questions

how is the sensor able to turn side to side in your beginners robot without a motor, you would reccommend picaxe over adruino, and where did you get the tracks for the wheels on your 2nd first robot, the one that resembles a tractor?

 

does it automatically start when u connect the power source, may seem dumb to you :P or is there a switch?
