This week I worked on constructing a bristle bot. That was made out of a toothbrush, a battery, 3D print leg a motor, and some tape. The idea of this assignment is to learn about the concept of the closed circuits in electronic technologies. It is an easy demonstrated by what we can do if we only have a motor, toothbrush, and battery… As my opinion, it could be related to the AI robot or a vacuum.
First of all, I split out brush head and toothbrush. Then I put some tape on the back of the toothbrush. Also, sticking the battery make the Bristlebot more stable. Finally, I add up the motor on the very top of the toothbrush. There is no switcher on this Bristlebot since I used tape to stick the red line with a negative and black line for positive. Moreover, the shape of the legs can make the toothbrush move differently. The little toothbrush bristle bot can keep running until I stop it. Like the video, we can see the Toothbrush Bristlebot can make a random discovery of a certain location or maybe more.
This experiment shows how electricity runs from a simple battery to the motor from the battery provides energy for motor and motor transform that energy to be the kinetic energy.
