Early Buggys

Here is a circuit board from an early prototype. This was the first try at an "etched" board, and it came out pretty well.

Here is the same board after my 10 year old got finished with it. Kind of a green lady bug!

Here is an even earlier design after my six year old finished with it. I built it on a strip board, and it used an Attiny13 8 pin chip, which stuck up in between the wings (just out of sight in the picture). It had a flaw in that it drained the battery in only a couple of days. The newer designs last much longer.
