Easy R/C Robot

This is a simple remote control robot I built out of trash. The PIC microcontroller is the only purchased part on the robot.

Power: 3AA batteries
Brains: PIC16F505
Code: BASIC (using Great Cow BASIC)
Features: Tank driving in any direction, Arcade gun sound
Control: IR remote
Terrain: Smooth surfaces
Cost: $0.50

I used an old remote found at a garage sale, due to its small size. With some effort, any infrared remote can be used with this robot, just change some values in the code.
