This is Blinky the Bristlebot and also an interesting demonstration of technological anthropomorphism (assigning human characteristics to animals, plants or inanimate objects).Adding the eyes and a name changed my friends' comments from '*sigh* another of Andy's strange gadgets' to 'Ahhhhh, Isn't he cute!'.This is my interpretation of the EvilMadScientist bristlebot which I made a few months ago.

Bristlebot fight club anyone?

Me to
I need to make one but i cant get the right motor... Fight club sounds fun though
&nbsp;adding the eyes and the name is important<br /> <br /> My first reaction was just like theirs<br /> <br /> 'Isn't it cute?'<br /> <br /> nice toy :)<br />
aaaaaaaaaaw i make one i shall name him blinky and blinky shall be mine
is it a phone vibrater deal? if so where at? under the battery? what kind of battery? sorry bout all the questions... not to smart
Yep, it's a phone vibrator and any small button-cell type battery will do. If you look at the opening shot in the video you can see it's held down by a springy bit of wire from one terminal of the motor. There's a wire you can't see from the other motor terminal to underneath the motor. See the EvilMadScientist link above for details. I used exactly the same principle but different components.
=O omg at 1:15 you made him fall!<br/><br/>meanie =D<br/>
I'll be making him a friend soon to make up for it.
and they live happily ever after...the end<br/><br/>=)<br/>
