Model: Bi-Pod
Average Rating: Not Rated


The Bi-Pod is a two legged robot power by two individual gear motors extracted from discarded printers. The power is generated from two Brainchild Solar Engine solar panels mounted on the opposite side of the body (see photos) and power storage is by 4 super capacitors making it extremely powerful and long discharge under very good direct sunlight. Our test result shows approx. 30 sec of recharge under 60,000 Lux of light intensity, which is a not very sunny day….

More capacitors can be added to make the motor go longer every time the voltage trigger turns on … like the Solar Powered Bio-sphere which uses 6 x 5.5V 0.22F capacitors.

The Package contains:

2x Geared motors (Discarded from used printers)

2x Brainchild Solar panels with circuit printed on back (2 panels needs to be connected in parallel so than whichever the Bi-Pod falls it will capture solar energy)

1x 1381 Voltage trigger, transistor and diode

1x Bi-Pod Body (Note: In the next version, the body parts of the Bi-Pod will be from standardized frames rather than CNC Aluminum block)

1x 45mm x45mm Experimental Board

2x Legs and extension steal wires as tentacles
