Bristlebots are small robots made by combining a toothbrush head and vibrating motor. By changing the position of the pipe cleaner arms, Bristlebots will travel in circles, straight lines, or scoot around randomly. What can you make your Bristlebot do? Bristlebots are great for teaching engineering, motors, circuits, and principles of balance.
NOTE: Bristlebots do not require tools to build. The toothbrush head comes pre-cut, and motor wires have exposed ends to connect to the battery.
