Robots are misunderstood
Chances are, you are probably surrounded by robots right now!
Your computer, your phone, the fire alarm in your house, even your car are examples of robotics you use in your every day life.
Bristlebots primary purpose is to make robotics education accessible and affordable. With Bristlebots, everyone from the child learning about the world, to the grandma exploring technology can explore the world of robotics.
Bristlebots are introductory level robots assembled using everyday household materials. They are fun, simple to assemble (and re-configure) robots that move based on the transfer of kinetic energy from the motor, to vibration of the robot to the ground. The bristles vibrate and move around!
Originally inspired by Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories “Bristlebot: A tiny directional vibrobot”, Kalani High School manufactures Bristlebots to support their robotics program and inspire creative learning with every Bristlebot!
Each Package includes 4 Kits. Each Kit includes:
x1 Instructional Package
x1 Colored Toothbrush head
x1 Vibrating Motor
x1 Batter Holder
x1 AAA Battery
x3 Glu Dots
x3 Small Rubber Bands

Besides that, they are fun to use. One interesting thing is sometime the motor didn't work with the battery, some things to try:
1. Flip the battery over and insert again
2. Battery is dead (we had one dead battery out of four kits)
3. Make sure the motor isn't hitting anything (we had this happen when using the motor on a different brush and if it was too far forward (I think) in the bristle that came with the kit.
I did notice that depending on how the battery was inserted it sometimes changed the intensity of the motor (one way the motor ran slower). Not sure if that's just the way it is or a flaw - we just changed the battery orientation depending on how fast/slow he wanted it to go.
Definitely a great project for a budding scientist or a kid who just loves robots.
