Did You Know This About Motors?

About: I am a photographer and ex-Engineering Student with more than just a curious mind. I use my knowledge about photography and basic engineering to create stunning videos for my YouTube channel (madsciencehacks...

In this video instructable, I'll show you how you can play music through a DC motor.

I know, it's not practical. But it's really cool knowledge to have, should you need an idea for a science project or just wow your friends.

Here's what you'll need -

  • 3v-6v DC motor
  • A deli tub of some kind. I found that styrofoam tubs work best.
  • A stereo system (or any other amplified music player)

I thought I would save you the trouble of reading a written article by creating the video below which explains the build, the science and showcases the sound I achieved all in just two minutes.

Watching the video is probably better than reading my description of how it sounds and works. You need to hear it to believe it!

If you can't see the video above, find it on my channel here - http://bit.ly/1ODLIwG
