(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.

So I'm in the process of ordering some parts to build the whole zoo and I've figured out most of the parts needed for all the bots but the bubblebot instructions are lacking some detail. I was hoping for a little clairfication to make it easier to build.
Servo Motor Reccomendation? I'm not sure what physical form factor the slot was made for.
Castor? Easy enough to make one but I wanted to know if you have a specific one in mind for this.
IR Sensor? It looks like a limit IR switch in the drawings but I'm not sure.
BubbleGun? Make/model you wer
http://youtu.be/x2Z2B4enuFc is the MakerBot TV episode where we talk about us building the bots.
Searching 'robot petting zoo' on Google will let you see several videos! Hope you can make it out to Maker Faire NY!
