Bristlebots

Background

Bristlebots are a small, tooth brush and vibration powered bot that can be created in under a few minutes.

Birtslebots have been around in form and function for years.  In recent years they've been made popular by DIY websites and blogs.  Popular toymaker Hexbugs released a retail version under the name "Nano" which is identical in function to the DIY versions.  

There are currently three versions of the kit available.  

Bristlebot - Single

Bristlebot - 4 Pack

Bristlebot - 25 Pack (Formerly the "Classroom" Set)

The build of each of these kits is identical, the only difference is how many bot kits are contained within.
