There is actually no source code per se. My idea about this project was making fun of term “programming”. Programming a robot not necessarily should be writing code, robots can be programmed different way too. In this project I actually “programed” this simple robot with pliers by bending the microcontroller pins. I hope it opens mind to non-standard approaches to problem solving. It is also quite educational to see that you can program a basic bristlebot with pliers and make it solve a maze :)
