Not one, but two! Light and Sound! MOON WALKER II has combined the technology of two sensors. A whimsical indication of future trends, MOON WALKER II begins to walk when it detects a change in light intensity or sound commands. MOON WALKER II continues it's four legged voyage until instructed by an internal timer to stop. This kit presents an engaging opportunity to learn about some of the mechanics, operation and history of robots. When assembled, this robot uses a photo transistor to sense changes in light (such as turning on a lamp) and a condenser microphone to sense changes in sound (such as clapping). It converts those stimuli into electronic signals to power a motor, and MOON WALKER II will walk forward for a preset time. When it stops, affecting other change in light area light or sound may activate it again. The sensors can be adjusted for different sensitivity levels.
