Our design is based primarily on the “free form” version of the Miller Solar Engine. You can find it diagrammed here. Solarbotics has a lot of the documentation and parts (we ordered the initial prototyping stuff from here but we went elsewhere for our bulk order since we’re making about 25 “critters” that will be attached to our sculpture. Most of what you’ll need is easy to find online but we had to search harder for the list below, both to find them and find better prices. I’ll skip the more common items.
