A Bristlebot is a small robot made by combining a toothbrush head and a vibrating pager motor.
The vibrations from the pager motor travel down the bristles and cause the brush to scoot and spin on flat surfaces. Build a Bristlebot in your home or classroom to teach basic engineering, motors, circuits and balance principles. Bend, twist and angle the chenille stems into different positions and see how it affects the movement and direction of your Bristlebot.
NOT SUITABLE AND NOT AVAILABLE FOR HOME USE.
Suitable for: Years 4+.
Be aware of the dangers associated with small button batteries especially if swallowed. We suggest that students are not allowed to take this product home.
