Assemble a simple Smart Robot with this kit from 4M. The unbalanced center of gravity of the motor and weight in an enclosed sphere makes this "robot" speed around your house, turning left or right like magic as it bumps into obstacles. Make a maze and see if the device can navigate its way through the barriers you create. See how inertia and angular momentum allow this robot to move in amazing ways that make it seem like it has a brain.
The kit contains a small battery-powered motor, axle, spherical assembly, and the other parts and instructions needed to put together this fascinating toy. Requires one AA battery and a small Philips screwdriver, not provided.
