Step 3: Mount the servo horn on the servo
Step 4: Mount the servos onto the bottom side of the main body cardboard piece. Use glue, tape or strips like here:

Step 5: Add a coaster to the back of the cardboard body piece. Any object will do, as long as it slides easily in all directions on the surfaces you plan to run on:
Step 6: Wire the servos to the BeagleBone and to one of the 12v USB chargers.
Step 7: Connect the BeagleBone to the other USB charger using the standard BeagleBone USB cable
