The Haptic Feedback Vibration Motor [Product Link] is ideal for robots like Bristle-Bots and wearable-electronic applications.
- Operating Voltage: 1.5-6V
- Diameter: 10mm
- Height: 4mm approx
The vibration of these motors causes the robot to move. This motor runs on voltages anywhere between 1.5V to 6V, but ideally should be run in the 1.5-3V range. Using voltages around 6V increases the chances of the motor burning out soon.
This motor can also be used in wearable electronics where feedback is needed on a particular part of body. A vibration motor placed on that part of the body can be used to indicate an event.
Possible Application Areas
Some of the applications of this robot are:
1. Bristle-Bots – by attaching this motor along with a 1.5V button cell, using double-sided tape, at the back side of the bristle end of a toothbrush, you can create a bristle bot that moves pretty fast.
2. Wearable Electronics – by attaching one or more of these motors to different parts of clothing, the vibration of these motors can be used to indicate an event or emergency situation. For example: Acoustic Wayfinder (Sonar Navigation) Project by Bruce Land’s Students [Project Link] [Video Link].
