This is a great solderless Arduino (Boarduino) based robotics project! Tinkerlog writes -

Jonathan asked me, if I would like to do a project with him on Braitenberg vehicles. After some research and reading the first couple of chapters in Vehicles: Experiments in Synthetic Psychology, I was hooked in. Here is the first version of a Braitenberg vehicle, powered with two RC-Servos and an Arduino as its brain. Best of all, it needs no soldering, drilling or hot glue. And if you’ve played already with Arduinos, there is a good chance, that you have already most of the needed parts at home..

  2. I love the design of the bot.I especially love how cheap it costs to make it! I definitely want to try something like that in the future!
