The solar locust is a sort of bristlebot: a pager motor activated by the sun shining on the solar cell makes him buzz and move all arount on flat surfaces.
Great build quality, a very eye-catching little nice toy!
Here now it's winter, I cannot test its efficiency under direct sunlight;
Obviously works with halogen or incandescent lamps too, but requires high wattage lamps or near light sources to gain enough energy to start buzzing.
Not a real con, definitely!
A must-have little toy! I will buy some other to astonish my friend's children :)
