What is a Junkbot?
For this project, it is a moving ‘bot’ made from waste materials, combined with an electric motor and a programmable device (in this case a Micro:Bit) to control (or try) it. An example is shown below. More details on junkbots can be found at http://junkbots.blogspot.co.uk/

Pyconuk16 junkbots

  1. 1. Python Junkbot - PyCon UK 2016 Junkbots (http://junkbots.blogspot.co.uk/) are based around using materials such as drink's cans, broken propellers and motors to produce something that moves by vibration. The following were programmed in either Python (Raspberry Pi) and micropython (Micro:Bit). Raspberry Pi Junkbot Based Junkbot design is to use the combination of Python and Pimoroni's Explorer HAT Pro to control it http://bit.ly/2c87qex Micro:Bit Junkbot Kitronik produce a motor driver board, and provide quite a bit of support for it, for the Micro:Bit (the latest version of the board can be found at https://www.kitronik.co.uk/5620-motor-driver-board- for-the-bbc-microbit-v2.html ). A 6v battery pack is connected (see on the left of the image) and wires going to a motor are attached to the first block on the front left (marked as motor A).
