Channeling surfing can get rather boring after a few hours, so why not mix it up by adding a cute TV robot to accompany all those lonely nights on the couch?

This DIY helps you in crafting your very own ‘Wiebelbot’ for your modern day television. The small USB powered robot wobbles every time you switch a channel. The cute robot is fairly cheap and easy enough to make. A ping pong ball was used in creating the robot, but that shouldn't stop you from using a bowling ball or a basketball as a substitute. To build the Wiebelbot, you do require some basic electronics and soldering skills, which shouldn't be a problem for most people who took electrical engineering courses back in high school or college.
