“The tool I brought today is a hobby gear motor. So this is a really flexible motor that can be embedded in all sorts of tinkering projects. It’s kind of an upgrade to the simple hobby motor… which is just a really fast motor that you can power with a AA battery and it will just move really fast. The cool thing about these gear motors is that they basically have that fast moving part. But then they also have two hubs that move more slowly, which can really open up the possibilities for different types of projects.”
