A motion board is a tiny vibrating motor.  This motor can be attached to paper or fabric easily using conductive thread or conductive tape.  Add a CR2032 battery to your project and this creates vibrations and movement. 

There are endless possibilities to use pager/vibrating motors in our Light Stitches Bristle/ Eco Bot kits uses these motors. A bristle bot is a simple walking robot with a rigid body.  A simple firm bristle toothbrush makes the bristle bot move quickly. It is easy to assemble and lots of fun just watch them move.
