(bullae ex machina)
Bubble Botâ€™s name is actually a misnomer. Bubble Bots are not robots, but sophisticated Dry Land Exploration Craft (DLEC) built and piloted by an unidentified race of aquatic organisms. The pilotâ€™s eyes can usually be seen glowing inside the botâ€™s domed cockpit. Bubble Bot is covered in sophisticated sensors tuned to detect mechanical organisms in our unique, waterless atmosphere. When startled the Bubble Botâ€™s pilot releases a stream of distracting bubbles to cover his escape.

This project is... difficult. If you're adventurous go ahead. It requires about 50 hours of printing, lots of soldering, tinkering with arduino code, moving internal parts, and other electronics work.
Check out BubbleBot_Assembly.pdf for build information.
