Super simple worm robot using a CDROM drive door opening mechanism. via instructables
Here is a simple to make Worm robot from salvaged pieces of wood from a crate, and an old CDROM Drive door opening mechanism.
To build the simple worm bot which mimics the crawling mechanism you’ll need basic soldering skills.But if you don’t know to solder, no worries ! check out the awesome guide on How to Solder – by noahw .In addition you’ll also need a basic wood working skills to salvage pieces of wood and drill holes for the screws to put all the parts together.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE.
