The Technical bit
The Crazy Cricket uses a photovoltaic solar cell to generate electricity from sunshine. This electricity drives a miniature motor that causes the Cricket to vibrate and ‘dance’ in the sun.
The solar cell used in the Crazy Cricket is a small version of the solar panels used on space satellites and space stations. Big arrays of solar panels are also used on earth to generate electricity to power homes, businesses and factories. Photovoltaic (PV) solar power is a form of renewable energy.
