What if Clocky the alarm clock didn't just run away from you in the morning? What if he could sense your presence and evade capture with an IR sensor? That's the annoying idea behind Mr. Wake.
Of course, looking at these videos it is plain to see that Mr. Wake is a moron. I'm pretty sure I could capture him even when my eyes are half open and I'm stumbling around the room. Still, it's a good proof of concept. Perhaps you can use Vadim Ryazanov's notes on the build to make Mr. Wake more elusive — although I have no earthly idea why you would want to torture yourself like this. [Let's Make Robots via Make]
