Step 2: preparing the motor and legs

This step is fairly easy, all you need to do is trim the wires to a short length, and bend your paperclips to small "legs". After you have bent your paperclip "legs" you can now add heatshrink tubing to the legs for extra "pizzaz."
Awesome! Great job!
This is really funny, thanks for the idea.<br>A little tip, do not make the legs too long, or glue a nut underneath so that the robot does not tip over.
Thanks, and if you like howto videos, tech reviews, and more, check out my youtube channel! I really appreciate the comment too :) !
This is one of my fave vibrots on this site.
Thanks, it means a lot to me!
I like how they light up! I LOVE leds!
Wow, you did a really great job. This is one of my fave vibrots on this site. keep up the good work!
Great instructable, but the photos should be bigger and more clear :/ other than that it looks like a quick simple project that anyone can do! thanks for posting!
thanks for commenting and next time i will use a canon HD camera. thanks for subbing too!
Great insructable. This would be a good starter project in robotics.
You could really do with larger, brighter photos (are these video screenshots?)<br><br>You can keep the cost down far below $15 by using motors from old electroc toothbrushes (the kind that just buzz instead of spinning the head around).<br><br>
thanks and the photo thing wasnt working correctly and i also found out that you can use old cell phones and get the motors from them. thanks so much for commenting i cant tell you how appreciative i feel when someone comments and btw have you seen my robot blog, www.simplebotics.blogspot.com
Phones, and pagers, but old toothbrushes are cheaper and easier to come by.<br><br>
