How to Make a BristleBot

Posted March 27, 2008

Don't throw that toothbrush away!  Turn it into a BristleBot

You need only the head of a toothbrush, a vibrating motor from a something like a pager, some foam tape and a watch battery.  Some soldering skills would help, too.


P.S.: Let me know if you can develop a BristleBot that can clean the floor or do the dishes.

    Just don't try to take one through the airport.....WMD!! I bet the Boston PD could pin the terrorist label on anybody caught with one of these too.

    Kind of reminds me of the old electric football, at least in their behavior.

    Remarkable! I can see these popping up in science projects
    in schools everywhere soon.
