Here is the deadly MiCROB|

Here is the result of a quick, half an hour of work ; The MiCROB, micro robot, the smallest robot i've ever built in my life. Based on one of our old projects ; The Simplebug, the microb uses the same simple (only 2 transistors) circuitry. Microb's engines are pager vibration DC motors which are really very small (around 2.5mm diameter and 7mm long). But they are powerful enough to easily move the tiny microb.|
The bug doesn't have a battery though i don't have such a small battery at hand. Instead i've installed a big capacitor and for powering the bug, i simply charge it. The stored energy is enough for 2-3 seconds of movement. The bug moves for a short time and chases light. It is also possible to use small watch batteries to power MiCROB or a small solar cell along with a suitable solar engine circuitry.
The coin next to the bug may give you an idea about the size of the bug. And i guess it is possible to build it even smaller. Well i guess it is your turn to make a smaller one.
