  • You're going to need a lot of sunlight

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    It's cute, it works and it doesn't get any simpler than this - a vibrating motor directly connected to a small solar panel.
    The plastic seems very nice for something so simple. I was surprised.

    Cons:

    What's up with the price? 1 standard motor, 1 tiny solar panel, 1 plastic case and 2 rubber legs - it should be a whole lot cheaper if you ask me.

    No on\off switch. When ever there's enough light, it'll start doing it thing. You can always cover the panel of course.

    A lot of light it required to get this boy going. If you use an iphone flashlight, it'll only start if the flashlight is less than a 1CM from the panel - Basically, only direct sunlight (on a sunny day) will do the trick.
    I ended up soldering a switch and a tiny battery into the one I got (luckily there's enough room for the very tiny battery inside it).

    OtherThoughts:

    The eyes were annoying (rattles when activated), so I tore them off - they were glued very well.

    Bottomline:

    If it wasn't overpriced, I'd buy an army of these for my cats to play with (after refitting them all with batteries)
