Inspired by how much free time fans of Instructables have churning out wacky gadgets I decided to join the foray.

Vibroclip is created in the same vein as in Evil Mad Scientist Bristlebot and other variants shown in Instructables.

Instead of a toothbrush head, paper clips serves as the body. The triangular shaped body is stable and does not fall or flip over easily as in vibrobots made from toothbrush heads.

I chose a particular body shape for Vibroclip but paper clips can be easily shaped into many other forms. Please experiment.

Vibroclip is fun, easy and cheap to make. Cost of all the parts can be less then a dollar if bought in bulk. Great for kids party or school project.

Another usefulness for the indelible mighty paper clip other then clipping paper, making cheap earrings or cloth hangers for socks.

Step 1: Vibroclip Parts

To create Vibroclip you will need following :

Three small paper clips
One twist tie wire (rubber band or duct tape)
Two small sticky foam tape (about half inch or so)
One 3V battery
One pager motor with leads attached (in this case a mini pager motor 3V 4mm x 8mm)
Very nice, but you ought to upload your video to YouTube, then embed it, so that folk can watch it without having to download it.
