OWI Moon Walker II
This Robotic Kit
from OWI has combined the technology of two
sensors, light and sound. A whimsical
indication of future trends, the MOON
WALKER II begins to walk when it detects a change in
light intensity or sound commands. MOON
WALKER II robot continues it's four legged voyage until
instructed by an internal timer to stop. This kit presents an engaging
opportunity to learn about some of the mechanics, operation and history
of robots. When assembled, this robot uses a phototransistor to sense
changes in light (such as turning on a lamp) and a condenser microphone to
sense changes in sound (such as clapping). It converts those stimuli into
electronic signals to power a motor, and MOON WALKER II will walk forward for a
preset time. When it stops, affecting other change in light area light or
sound may activate it again. The sensors be adjusted for different
- Movement: 2 legs on each side by crank shaft.
- Control: Sound sensor including condenser
microphone/transistor; Light sensor/photo transistor.
- Power Source: "AA" x 1 (not
- Size: H130 x Diameter 100mm.
- Power Consumption: Approx. 210mA.
