Brushbot Workshop Draws Mob of Aspiring Young Roboticists!

A large group of young folks with parents participated in a workshop to learn about Brushbots and how to build them.  The group was given some background on the use of a toothbrush head with miniature vibrator motor and a battery attached to create a small operating robot that has come to be known as a Brushbot (also Bristlebot and Vibrabot’. The TSC Robotics version of this device is called Super Brushbot because it incorporates different design and assembly techniques than the traditional version to create a device with replaceable battery and the addition of sensors for more realistic robot behavior. Doing so extends the usefulness of the bot as a learning tool. The main advantage of this class of robot is that they are very economical while being fun to experiment and play with.
