How about you and I partner on this? I'll be your pitch man, we call it a Broomba, and we make *billions.*

Replace all the cars in the fast and furious movies with these and I’d marathon the shit out of it.

I don't know why this is here, Brush bots are cool

Anything is a vibrator if you’re brave enough.

I don't know how something thats just a motor can be so life like.

Hexbug version

It's a big version of this: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yNS56qYyfLY which is just a fun project for kids.
14 Jan 2018 02:22 - +57
DEJA VU!

I know it's silly but would be a neat STEM "experiment" to do with kids...attaching a motor to their backs and watch them shake around.
14 Jan 2018 02:04 - +34
I can't stop giggling.. why can I stop giggling at this
14 Jan 2018 02:14 - +32
Even though this DIY has no real practicality, you cannot deny that brush has some mad drifting skill.

Hot glue AND soldering? This right here is the future.
14 Jan 2018 02:03 - +15
That has got to be among the greatest things ever conceived by man.
14 Jan 2018 02:27 - +13
It's like a nanobug
14 Jan 2018 03:20 - +9
Totally reminds me of a hexbug nano
14 Jan 2018 04:45 - +8
That's not what "brushed motor" means. I'll get my coat.

In case you haven't watched it here's a teardown of a Hitach Magic Wand, it uses the same principle to create vibration: https://youtu.be/fyuv3WXPQsM

A weapon to surpass metal gear.

This needs to be made into an Initial D meme. I can *hear* Deja vu in the background.
14 Jan 2018 02:50 - +3
This is kinda baller. I can't fathom a use for it, but it looks adorable and funny, if maybe a little dangerous for pets and very small children. 6.5/10
14 Jan 2018 08:01 - +3
i need more fan-boat based home automation in my life.
14 Jan 2018 04:42 - +3
Early years? My first Roomba was a Frisbee glued to a bunch of rats.
14 Jan 2018 07:00 - +3
I thought it was going to be a ladies' device for a moment there.
14 Jan 2018 05:15 - +3
this is how the Cylons started
14 Jan 2018 09:31 - +3
Why? To scare the shit out of the cat. That's why.
14 Jan 2018 01:44 - +3
That’s cool.
14 Jan 2018 03:30 - +3
Did I just learn how to make a vibrator
14 Jan 2018 07:05 - +2
I'd make this just to have it running when I have friends over.

That's just hilarious
14 Jan 2018 07:35 - +2
It will fuck up your walls though

Life...life finds a way
14 Jan 2018 07:23 - +2
This is how things are invented! 🔥
14 Jan 2018 05:27 - +2
Isn’t this just a big hex bug?
14 Jan 2018 07:49 - +2
Idk I kind of like the idea of having cute yet useless robot buddies bumbling around my house
14 Jan 2018 03:01 - +2
I love those mad drifts tho. Clipped the guard rail on the exit but a nice one none the less.
14 Jan 2018 08:03 - +2
We used to ride these babies for miles
14 Jan 2018 03:12 - +2
This reminds me of those Hexbug toys
14 Jan 2018 04:33 - +2
Awesome
14 Jan 2018 03:14 - +2
hot glue truly is the mark of the beast. Damn what a contraption.
14 Jan 2018 05:26 - +2
Like literally what is the point of this. This *has to be a joke*
14 Jan 2018 03:28 - +2
That actually looks fun. It’s basically a giant hex bug. Useless for cleaning though
14 Jan 2018 05:27 - +2
made it for a science project, it was fun
14 Jan 2018 03:29 - +2
Looks like a giant Hexbug

Looks like a bigger version of those Hexbug Nano’s. I like it lol
14 Jan 2018 07:02 - +2
Just imagine that bolt hitting your toe knuckle...
14 Jan 2018 03:34 - +2
I laughed way to hard at this
14 Jan 2018 07:10 - +2
Looks like a shitty hexbug.

Hexbug nano's mom
14 Jan 2018 07:35 - +2
My floors are so clean that the base boards are completely gone!
14 Jan 2018 03:40 - +2
This is a giant hexbug though
14 Jan 2018 07:48 - +2
MULTI-TRACK DRIFTING?!
14 Jan 2018 03:44 - +2
We had an event in our makerspace, had lots of families over and all the kids made brushbots and they fought / raced in a sumo arena. It was loads of fun and everyone had a blast.
14 Jan 2018 07:52 - +2
This is actually the earlier years of the [broomshakalaka](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zt2uIhAvQZ8).
14 Jan 2018 03:46 - +2
Not enough hot glue.
14 Jan 2018 08:03 - +2
Probably not so great for cleaning, but that would make a bangin’ cat toy.
14 Jan 2018 03:48 - +2
Daddy Hexbug
