A vibrobot is perhaps one of the quickest and easiest bots that you can build. In almost no time you can make a fun little bot that makes its ways to and fro across the floor. It is so easy, in fact, that it wouldn't be hard to make a few at once. And then, you can have your own mini private army of vibrobots to do your bidding (assuming that your bidding is to have a bunch of tiny little bots moving randomly to and fro).

Step 1: Go get stuff

You will need

- 3VDC Micro-Vibration Motor (Model: 273-107 | Catalog #: 273-107)
- CR1220 Coin Cell Dip Type Battery Holder (Model: 270-008 | Catalog #: 270-008)
- Enercell® 3V/225mAh CR2032 Lithium Coin Cell Battery (Model: CR2032 | Catalog #: 23-802)
- Toothbrush
Umm... can anyone please tell me if toothbrush with criss cross bristles(like the one used in this instructable) or toothbrushes with flat bristles work better?
<p>You can make both and make them fight to see and let us know the result. :)</p>
can u tell me the scientific principle of it as fast as u can ?//
I added a switch to mine because the battery was a pain off the &quot;bug to put in,&quot; so I figured it'd be harder on. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yB8HidxsM7I
Ahhhh so this is how you make a vibrating toothbrush.. ;D
Mine just fall over after about 2 seconds and go around in circles. I used a different toothbrush and it would fall about .5 seconds after I set it down. Any help?
Sure man, its all about the weight balance. try glueing something heavy enough from the side opposite to where it falls.<br>check mine out <br>http://www.instructables.com/id/Bristle-Bug/ <br>I had to balance the bug on it....
i dont know as i haven't made one but what if you tried and did 2 toothbrush bottoms? or maybe used something to cut it so it was completely flat on the bottom? <br><br>just a thought
Great Video. great instructable. <br>I am making one just like it only mine has a twist... wait and see...
Like I said, here is mine: <br>http://www.instructables.com/id/Bristle-Bug/<br>check it out

That is so cool! So fast and easy, it made me laugh!
