So I'm in the process of ordering some parts to build the whole zoo and I've figured out most of the parts needed for all the bots but the bubblebot instructions are lacking some detail. I was hoping for a little clairfication to make it easier to build.

Servo Motor Reccomendation? I'm not sure what physical form factor the slot was made for.

Castor? Easy enough to make one but I wanted to know if you have a specific one in mind for this.

IR Sensor? It looks like a limit IR switch in the drawings but I'm not sure.

BubbleGun? Make/model you wer
e using?

What software was used to design these little monsters ?

I made most of the parts for BubbleBot with AutoCAD. Adam made parts like the eye and the wings in Modo.

Love it! Any chance you could post a video of it doing some exploring?

Searching 'robot petting zoo' on Google will let you see several videos! Hope you can make it out to Maker Faire NY!
