More ooh than ick, Blinkybugs are small, hand-built, electromechanical bugs built from scavenged materials and powered with a single coin-cell battery. When the Blinkybug's wire antennae detect motion from air currents or vibrations, the bug comes to life, with its LED eyes blinking in rhythmic patterns. <br /><br />
Ken Murphy is a tinkerer, programmer, and musician who created the Blinkybug during his quest to devise the simplest possible robotic creation. Ken enjoys creating new styles of Blinkybugs as well as various other blinking and bleeping things.
