Some of the buildable bots you'll meet include: * Yellow Drum Machine, which roves around looking for things to drum on, then drums, records, and accompanies itself playing catchy rhythms * Roomba Recon, Roomba robotic vacuum with a wireless router and webcam on its back, programmed so you can drive it around your house and see what it sees from a browser window anywhere * Hamster-Powered Strandbeest, which walks around on eight legs, powered by a hamster inside its hamster globe headA * The winning project from MAKE's Most Entertaining Robot contest * Tiny Robots made from common electronics components. The special Robots section will also include a roundup of hobby robotics highlights, and a Primer on using the EZ-Robot controller board to turn any animatronic toy into a fully controllable robot that recognizes faces and responds to voice commands.
