Brick Motor

Regular price £9.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
A regular DC motor that you can connect to your Smartibot and works with world's favourite plastic brick construction system. It has a shaft with a + profile for mounting to bricks, wheels and gears (to make them move), holes in the side to take plastic peg connectors as well as bumps and recesses to connect to regular bricks.

Up to 4 of these motors can be independently controlled from the M1 to M4 connections on a Smartibot and set up to be controlled with buttons, sliders or joysticks in the Smartibot app. You can also program their behaviour using blocks or JavaScript in the Espruino IDE.

These red versions are continuous rotation motors (unlike their grey-coloured siblings which are servos). They are great for driving wheels or mechanisms you want to run continuously but less good for moving robotic elements like grabbers, arms and legs, where you want position accuracy and don't need continuous rotation. These can be driven forward and backward just like the motors from the Smartibot kit but are just smaller, less powerful and a bit easier to mount on plastic brick creations.
