Meet the bunny, a simple “pettable” robot that is made with the Hummingbird Robotics Kit and common craft materials. We call it a pettable robot, because it is activated when someone pets it! The bunny uses LEDs, position servos, and a light sensor, making it a great starter robot.
Build Time: 60-90 min (depending on skill level and design choice)

Choose which side of the box is going to be your bunny’s face. Using a blade, make a hole in the center of the face.
Feed the tri-color LED wire through the hole until the muzzle sits flush against the face.
Note: Some people choose to put a dab of hot glue behind the muzzle to hold it firm against the bunny’s face.
