Dancing Bot

Music and dancing is so good for soul so we built a robot that can dance with you. Turn on the music and dance away!


  • Easy



  1. Let your kids create the face of the dance bots. They can use whatever they want to decore the cup: paint, googly eyes, cotton, anything to make the bot come alive.

  2. Once you have the face of the bot you can move on to use the electric tape or any other tape you have around your house to put the legs together. You should have 4 wooden sticks for the legs. Space them equally.

  3. Now to the heart of the robot! Attach the battery pack to the DC motor by wrapping the wire around the leads on the motor. Cover with electric tape. Tape the motor and battery holder on top of the cup.

  4. Pin the bottle cork to the mini motor.

  5. Turn on the motor, play some music and start dancing!!

HOWs and WHYs

The dancing bot has an unbalanced motor that makes it move in different ways. In this case the cork makes the motor unbalanced and as the motor moves/vibrates it causes the dance bot to move.
