Cybug Solar Fly
The Solar Fly has infra red lights and seeks out the brightest lights in the area. It's movements resemble an insect and also has a battery mode. This solar robot is sold at the Robotshop.Price $36.00

Why buy solar robots?
Robotics & Solar power are two revolutionary technologies that are booming in our current culture. Both may become tools to save humanity in the future. I feel I do not know enough about either and therefore am attempting to learn how to build these simple kits and familiarize myself with some simple robotics and solar panels. I am also interested in comparing the solar kits of Robotshop and Solarbotics.
