Motorized gerbil balls

Miniballs are small ball-shaped robots that move around as a function of things moving inside of them. The Miniball was originaly invented by Richard Weait of North York, Toronto.

Once upon a time, long long ago, Solarbotics sold these things as kits. Alas and alack, miniball kits are no more. Being good and decent folks, though, Solarbotics has the construction plans for miniballs online (PDF, 649 KBytes).
