HOWTO Make a BristleBot vibrating toothbrush robot

Evil Mad Scientist Labs's BristleBot uses a pager motor and a toothbrush head to make a tiny, vibrating remote controlled robot. Looks like a fun xmas holidays project for the kids!

The BristleBot is a simple and tiny robot with an agenda. The ingredients? One toothbrush, a battery, and a pager motor. The result? Serious fun.

The BristleBot is our take on the popular vibrobot, a simple category of robot that is controlled by a single vibrating (eccentric) motor. Some neat varieties include the mint-tin version as seen in Make Magazine (check the video), and the kid's art bot: a vibrobot with pens for feet.
