a scavenged solar-powered yard light to its
back, I created my own ActoBuggy! By
tweaking the inputs and outputs with
jumper wires, I was finally able to make my
ActoBuggy drive around the yard seeking

This relocation action kept the solar-powered yard light in full sun during the day
and recharged its onboard NiCd battery.
Then, every day I swap out a different NiCd
battery and cycle it through the ActoBuggy
battery pack. Therefore, the Microcerebrum
helps feed itself by keeping its batteries fully
That’s either a brain with a reason or a
reason for a brain. Take your pick. SV
