New projects in the making.......

It has been awhile since my last post and in that time I have been on holiday and didn't any tinkering at all.I did,however,visited the American Science and Surplus shop in Chicago and bought a few things.Mostly small boxes to put electronic circuits in.
I'm still working on the Beetlebot and the line following robot,but I think I need some gear motors for that.Other projects I'll be working are:a new Rolling Ball Machine,a pendulum like this one and of course some Pummers and Magbot Pendulums.

Simple line following robot.

This is my latest project and one I wanted to build for awhile.Since this the first line follower I'm making I choose for a simple circuit:
I got the design from this source.It took me a bit of troubleshooting on the breadboard to make it work.
Even though this is supposed to be a black line follower,my motors stopped when the LDR's were covered.So it seems to be turning into a white line follower.
