Tiny Robot Insects Charm Their Way Into Our Lives

by


No, these bug-eyed critters aren’t going to bite. On the contrary – these insect-inspired mini robots are actually quite harmless.

In between farming blueberry crops, Adam Claflin of MiddleCreekMerchants makes the little Wigglebot robots (shown above) from a few bent wires for legs, a coin battery for a body, and a pair of colorful LEDs for eyes. Add to the mix a tiny little motor for a head, and the little creatures can vibrate their way across your desktop.

Adam makes a variety of unique bug-like robots, including these tiny wonders that you can control with an ordinary television remote control.

But the pièce de résistance has to be this awesome robo-caterpillar, which squirms around the floor using six interconnected motor segments for a body.

The basic Wigglebot sell for just $10 bucks a piece, while the IR bot is a quite a bit more involved, selling for $75 each. And the crazy robotic caterpillar will set you back a hefty $175 – but it is oh, so cool.

Adam’s buggy little robots can be found over MiddleCreekMetchant’s shops over at the Makers Market or on Etsy. Bugspray not included.

    I BOUGHT SEVERAL ROBOTS FROM Adam Claflin THEY ARE NICE, AFTER A WHILE I PAYED HIM TO BUILD A ROBOT-CATERPILLAR FOR ME, HE KEPT THE MONEY AND NEVER DELIVERED THE ROBOT. I CONTACTED HIM SEVERAL TIMES TO NO AVAIL. DO NOT TRUST HIM.
