Motorbot Joule Thief

Motorbot uses the armature coil of a burned out fan assembly as part of the inverter circuit  Magnets are used to attach power leads to the battery.

Surface mount white leds are the eyes.

A cds cell on top of the head will allow Motorbot to come on only at night.

A washer is soldered to the board and used to hold the magnet for the negative terminal.
The parts on the PC board are part of the old motor circuit and are not used for the artbot.
