Tyco Rebound Robot

One of the projects that I did when I was in art school was to make an exact computer model of a remote-control car. A few years after I finished that project, I decided to modify the toy into a robot. I never took this one too far but got it to the stage that it had a microcontroller inside and could drive around autonomously. My thinking at the time was that I would make two of them that would be prey and predator robots. I just didn't know enough to make a good prey robot though. Even now, it would be difficult because it would need to be able to plan ahead so that it didn't run into things and would need to try to find good places to hide.
