TUTORIAL - An Automated Toothbrushing Machine, Not Coming To A Store Near You....

Simone Giertz shared a tutorial for the building of a toothbrush machine...but not one she necessarily recommends for use. Fascinating project is also a provocation regarding automation and machine design.

The Toothbrush Machine®: because knowing how to build something doesn't always mean you should.


The other week I built a toothbrush machine as a part of a pilot for a kids show about electronics. And because I love shitty robots and wanted an excuse to make one for myself. I posted it on Reddit and some people requested a tutorial on it so here we go....

Make sure to see the full tutorial here. And catch a sneak preview video below.
