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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
