Venus Fly TrapBot - Solar Powered - Papillon Captured
May 22, 2009
Solar Powered Venus Fly Trap.
Following up an idea posted by (-: rik :-) here is LMRs first Solar-TrapBot that will eat anything in its path.
Its powered with a Solar Cell Miller Engine with a whopping lip-smacking 1 Farad Super Cap to power its Hungry Jaws.
If anyone whats to save Papillon the Solar-AirBot Butterfly then you have to put your Bid in Quick as its looking to be very Sunny this Weekend ...............
Cardboard Prototype with Changeover switch
Not such an easy task.
However its very easy to tweak the gears and motor into position when you have the basic form sorted out.
Changeover switch re-vamped as a Limit Switch - so when the BotTrap catching petals are closed it switches the power off the circuitry - mission accomplished.
