The robots are coming! MAKE Volume 27 shows you how to build robots that walk, fly, swim, play music, dance, and even extinguish fires. Some of the buildable bots you’ll meet include:

  • Yellow Drum Machine, which roves around looking for things to drum on, then drums, records, and accompanies itself playing catchy rhythms
  • Roomba Recon, Roomba robotic vacuum with a wireless router and webcam on its back, programmed so you can drive it around your house and see what it sees from a browser window anywhere
  • Hamster-Powered Strandbeest, which walks around on eight legs, powered by a hamster inside its hamster globe “head”
  • The winning project from MAKE’s Most Entertaining Robot contest
  • Tiny Robots made from common electronics components.

The special Robots section will also include a roundup of hobby robotics highlights, and a Primer on using the EZ-Robot controller board to turn any animatronic toy into a fully controllable robot that recognizes faces and responds to voice commands.
