The Solarbotics Squid Hunting CarouSol Kit offers to construct your own giant squid and steam-punk submarine. Each circle the other around a kelp forest, powered by the energy-concentrating SolarEngine.

In direct sunlight, activation happens in seconds. Indoors, in a location like an interior office with fluorescent fixtures, you can expect motion every 6 minutes. As long as there is sufficient light to read by, this device still works, activating only when it has stored enough power to create useable motion.
