…BristleBots are part of a controversy?


Remember BristleBots, the tiny little ‘robots’ that use little more than a pager motor, a battery and a toothbrush head to create locomotion?

Well apparently, Klutz and Scholastic claim to have thought of the exact same idea with the exact same name at the exact same time as Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories, and are making a book with the bots without giving credit to the original inventors.

It’s still up in the air as to what will happen with this whole situation, and you can follow the updates on the MAKE: Blog, but hopefully this will all get resolved in the right way, and credit will be given where credit is due.

…It’s TGI Friday: BristleBot?


This weekend, grab a toothbrush, a battery, and a pager motor, and make yourself a BristleBot.

It’s simple, it’s fun, and it works, so what are you waiting for?
