Dangerous is a mind which is left grounded at home for days. Being stuck at home and having a few pieces of joy around made me do this over the weekend.


  • An old Toy RC car broken out of shape by my 4 year old

  • DAGU Mini Driver

  • Screw Driver/Batteries/Tape/Glue/Rubber bands/Old gift cards

  • Half an hour of coding


A car that runs automatically making 8 shape on the floor (More like random fractals due to the wheels having no grip)

Broken toy with its main board (RF receiver + motor driver) unscrewed

New mainboard or in Indian speak - JUGAAD

Restoring the mess I made of my DAGU mini driver
