A Tennessee-based husband and wife team make lots of handcrafted items to sell in their Etsy shop. Among their handcrafted items are tiny robots made of recycled gadgets and electronics. Some are battery powered, but others have wee solar cells to power their movement and sometimes, their voices.

The couple’s day job is running their ‘Middle Creek Blueberry Farm.’ Of themselves they say, "We are mechanics and bakers. We work in the garden and write computer apps."

From the looks of their work, they must be doing just what they were meant to do! Stats for Tiny Solar-Powered Robots Trending: Older & Average
