Watch This Little Bug-Bot Try to Find Its Way Through a Maze
This may be the easiest way to make a tiny insect-like BEAM (biology, electronics, aesthetics, mechanics) robot.
By simply attaching a tiny DC motor to the head of a toothbrush and then connecting it up to a button cell, the bug bot can zoom around using the vibrating bristles as its propulsion method.

Known as ART, the amphibious robot could help with monitoring challenging terrestrial-aquatic ecosystems.
