More on Mousey at the Faire

I know you’re probably sick of seeing Mousey-related posts here. This is the last one, I promise (until the Faire, anyway). This a shot of the bots we’re taking with us, posing in front of the Solarbotics parts bundles we’ll be using in the Workshop.

The motors, battery snap, and SPDT toggle switch will be what’s in the car bundle, those components plus everything else, will be in the full Mousey the Junkbot bundle. The full bundle includes a button/momentary switch, the same kind as is found in a mouse, but with a little metal lever over the button, which makes it SO much easier to attach the bumper. The kit also includes two IR optical sensors, which are a nice backup/alternative to the IR detectors salvaged from an analog mouse.
