LadyBugBot, the creepy-crawly robotic fridge magnet

For Let's Make Robot's robo-wiz "Isotope," anything he sees has the potential to be a 'bot. Example: pondering a simple ladybug magnet on his refrigerator, he decided it'd be better as a larger, motorized magnetic crawler exploring the surface of his fridge. $30 and 16 hours later, he had the charming LadyBugBot you can see in the video above.

He's also got a full list of DIY instructions posted, and it's simple enough that'd it'd be a great present for anyone you'd like to give a little homemade cheer for the holidays.
