Nice gadgert! – Novel Solar Powered Locust Reviews

posted by Polonium on 01/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
When it arrived, i was positively surprised about build quality and size: thought it would be smaller.
It carries a nice solar panel. When the sun shines, a small motor with an assymetrical axis starts rotating (like the vibrating motor in a cell phone).
Cons:
- It needs a lot of light to start: no TL light or indirect solar light will work, unless you use a light bulb at close range.
- It vibrates: you just have to guess where he's going to...
Other:
Bottomline:
It doesn't do much other than vibrating in the sun but it is a nice educational gadget.
If you count in the price than this is a must-have for greenies.
