Haptic Feedback

Overview

The Haptic Feedback Vibration Motor [Product Link] is ideal for robots like Bristle-Bots and wearable-electronic applications.

Technical Specs

Haptic Feedback Vibration Motor
  • Operating Voltage: 1.5-6V
  • Diameter: 10mm
  • Height: 4mm approx

Description

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].
