This bot was meant to fly. It spins, at least.

Originally, I've attached a plastic propeller to the motor, hung it on a thread and excitedly went to try it in the sun.

It did not work.


Instead of gracefully flying in circles, it kept squirming and spinning around like crazy.

So I've attached a cogwheel from a CD-ROM drive and placed it on table - the Spinbot was born.
