If you want a little robot pet, here’s your ticket. Over at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories, they created the odd Bristlebot robot using some odd supplies. Namely a battery, a toothbrush head, and a cell phone vibrator. Now, one of the website’s readers has combined those ideas and invented the new chipbot, which is a Bristlebot made from an old computer chip.
You know how geeks are, many of us are more likely to have an old computer chip lying around than a spare slanted toothbrush head. Basically, you just fold the chip’s pins down and slant them forward and follow the old Bristlebot instructions. Before you know it, you’ll have a speedy little geek companion.
