One of the fun projects we have at Brown Dog Gadgets are known as Vibrobots. I made one I call the Rockin’ Amp. These are fun little bots made with simple paper circuits and Maker Tape.
We provide free templates that can be downloaded and printed by anyone, and you can make these projects even if you buy the components from elsewhere. (Though you’ll need to modify things if you try to use copper tape, as it’s very thing & fragile and only conductive on one side.)
These projects tend to be a cross between arts & crafts and simple electronics. There’s some cutting involved, some taping, some learning, and if you prefer to do more decorating you can print the black & white version and color it yourself.
Credit where credit is due… I started with this basic 2D illustration of an amplifier, and changed a few things, and added in the other five side so it would fold up into a 3D object.
Here’s our Rockin’ Amp in action…
