Title: D.C. Current
Description:DC Current- Electric current which flows in one direction only through a circuit or equipment. The associated direct voltages, in contrast to alternating voltages AC (the stuff which comes out the electric outlet at home and is extremely dangerous), are of unchanging polarity and are used in all battery driven toys.

Title: Electric Motor
Description:Motor- An electric motor is constructed of electrical coils (coils of electrical wires) n a shaft which produces a magnetic field when electricity passes through it. By putting some magnets inside in a special way will propel the shaft to rotate, turning electrical energy into mechanical motion we can use.

Title: Solar Panel
Description:Solar Cells or Solar Panels- These are specially constructed electrical chips that convert the photons coming in from the sun to make electric current. Any electrical equipment attached to it will get electricity.

Title: Diode
Description:Diodes- This is like a one-way valve similar to a bike pump where air can go in one way only and it will allow electric current to flow in one direction only.

Title: Capacitors
Description:Capacitor- These things are like a rechargeable battery but is more environmentally friendly because it does not contain as much chemicals as a battery and it will last much longer if your electrical equipment is capable of using them. Some capacitors are very large (the size of 10 shoe boxes) and are used in satellites in space. They can charge and recharge very efficiency compare with batteries.

Title: Voltage Trigger System
Description:When the solar panel has charged the capacitor (a device which stores electricity} to a threshold level of 4.5 volts, it will be release power to the motor and drive your robot/toy. There is no need to turn the robot on or off as the charging is continuous and when the threshold is reached the energy is discharged and the toy will move according to its function. This works with the Tornado Bo, Yo Bot or other commercially available toys.

Title: Trickle Charge
Description:When energy is produced through a solar panel it needs to be stored so that enough energy is available to make a motor work. A capacitor is used to store the energy through a process called trickle charge. Storing electricity inside a capacitor is like storing water droplets in a bucket and letting them all out at once to turn a water wheel. The droplets individually do not turn the wheel but when they are collected together at a certain point there are enough to do the work.
