Original V2.5 Bristlebots
the best of both worlds
Our new V.3 kits were made for durability, speed, and easy assembly for new advanced discoveries. These V.2.5 kits are a slightly modified version of our original V.2 kits which features wires and circuit assemblies. Great for classrooms to introduce to basic robotics and circuits.
It's about circuits
No more hot messy soldering. We designed the bristlebot motors to be easier for assembly with out sacrficing the D.I.Y. aspect. Attaching our PCBA motors to a Bristlebot is easier and turning it off and on is a breeze with our strudy jumper wires.
Comes with everything you need to make a Bristlebot
Each kit comes with standard material to decorate and make a Bristlebot, however, you are not limited to the materials included we recommend you add your own ideas and material to personalize your robot. For ideas visit our resources page.
Each kit comes with a standard AAA battery and battery holder. However you could also use different energy sources on your robot such as button batteries or even maybe a PV panel. One of the educational lessons could involve closed circuits and forms of energy.
Our Newly Designed Brushes
What is it that makes a Bristlebot fly across the tabletop? That makes a Bristlebot race faster than its opponents and electrifies the students that built them? It comes to their creative designs really. The slanted brushes will help propel the robot forward, and a reduced amount of bristles help it glide easier across the tabletop. The brushes are custom made to fit our motor modules.
The world is better in color
Our newly designed brushes come in 7 colors, orange, yellow, cyan, green, pink, red, and white. Each bristlebots kit comes with one of these colors.
Zip Lock Packaging
Each Bristlebot kits are individually packaged and ready to go. Our new packaging is ideal for distributing robots at event, functions, and retailing. It also includes a re-sealable zip at the top to store your robot and parts after use.
Each bristlebots kit includes the following: (1) instructional box, (1) custom toothbrush head, (1) PCBA Motor Board and jumper cables, (1) battery holder, (1) AAA battery, (3) GluDots, (4) small rubber bands, (1) large rubber band, (1) chenille stem, (2) wiggle eyes.
