Dan Roe.  Specimen no. 2 (2006)
Solar engine, steel, 10 1/2
" x 9 1/2" x 4 1/2".

Description: This minimally designed sculptural robot is entirely solar powered, so it's autonomous in energy acquisition.  It is also autonomous in control since it employs a simple open source BEAM 1381 solar engine  circuit.  As with all my work, this sculpture is designed with open source circuits and off the shelf technologies (including o-rings and hose clamps).
