That is so awesome! Thanks for sharing. You should post your derivative somewhere.
Thanks for sharing and the sources. I printed several of these and modified the platform a little bit. I made the motor holder a little bit bigger, in case of several broken ones.
On a day of open house of our fablab, we played soccer with these little cute bots. :)Here is a video (sorry for bad quality :( ) youtube.com/watch?v=1VYp0XFapqE
The motors can be a bit loud under PWM control so the capacitor helps with that.

why have you installed a capacitor on the motor?.

im about to start printing this!

What is the size of this, as i think makerware it pulling it up in correctly. The one I printed is about the size of an average Sticky-Note
if you can fit a X4 AA pack in the clips on the bottom then its the proper size
