Electric Toothbrush Teardown – with Waterproof Components, Vibrating Motor, Integrated Circuits, and More!
Cool teardown of an otherwise cheap electric toothbrush reveals some novel design choices and even finely crafted components – and an awesome cross-section view of a vibrating motor (first image above)!
A battery powered electric toothbrush…. surely the most boring thing one could imagine to tear down? Nope. processors, patents, motors and very careful design. A tribute of technology and careful design!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
