Step 1: Build a Vibrobot
You've seen them all before: Vibrobots. Neat little toys using a pager motor, a toothbrush head, and a battery. Cute, aren't they?
Step 2: My Not-so-cute Vibrobot
I only had AA batteries on hand. Using one battery on top of the motor on top of the bristles proved too top heavy. So I added another battery as ballast and hung them low around the bristles. Note my extra swanky on/off switch: a rubber band.
Step 3: Paint, and a Surface
The bot seemed sluggish on a soft surface, so I placed a sheet of sketch paper on a drawing board.
Turn it on, set it on the paper and once again marvel at the magic of the artistic process.
Spirograph has nothing on Vibrobot.
