Meet Dusty

Dusty is a Wacky Robot with a flair for light. He may be small, but don’t underestimate his might!

With his ability to follow the shine, Dusty loves to groove from left to right.

Lighting the way

Dusty moves by following light using photoresistors. These decrease resistance and allow more current flow.

With two photoresistors, Dusty detects the light direction and moves accordingly. This simple system gives Dusty agility and grace, ready to conquer the world with a bit of soldering.
