If creating Mousey the Junkbot is too much hassle for you (I know it was to me) you can give the Tama-Robo a go. This cute little robot comes in a round see through ball that allows it to move all over the place with ease. And where does it move to? To the brightest source of light, of course. Paired with a torch light in a suitably-lit area, you can control where this robot goes by shining the torch all over the place. The Tama-Robo needs to be assembled when you first get it though, but it looks pretty simple, and doable by anyone. It’s customizable in the sense that you can adjust the weights inside his body to change the way he moves. The Tama-Robo is available for $70 and can be purchased here. Watch a video of the robot in action after the break:
