Machine Pp3 and Bob Battery Bots: 9-Volt Robot Goodness
January 22nd, 2009
What do you get when you take a couple of bright red LEDs, a tiny circuit board, a few wires and strap them to a couple of batteries ? I’ll tell you what you get. You get Machine PP3, a teensy, weensy little pocket sized robot that will charm the socks off of anyone he meets.
Designed by inventor Wayne Poulton of Addject, Machine PP3 glides and spins along any smooth surface while his little bug-like red eyeballs light his way. His buddy bOb is only described as “a bit more skittery” than PP3, and buzzes along to keep him company on your desktop. With no 9-volt battery, he’d not likely to be as mighty as PP3, either.
Still, with his googly eyes, and vibraty metal ball feet, what’s not to like. You couldn’t possibly separate this dynamic duo, could you?
Both Machine PP3 and bOb can be found over at UK hobby shop AntiGravity for £9.99 (appx. $14 USD) each.
