Hi-
Anyone know of a source for even smaller motors than the pager motors?

Analog watches.  Kids analog watches can be had for cheap, ladies small
watches have smaller motors.

These are pulse type motors (typically a solenoid driving a gear) so it
may actually be easier to drive than a regular motor from a PIC.  Not
too powerful, but I've seen someone use them in a BEAM robot before (on
the web - still can't find it again ...:(    )

As a side note, they can be driven surprisingly fast, and you've got
three gearings to choose from.

Good luck!

Are you thinking of Alice?

The entire server dmthttp://www.epfl.ch is empty, no subdirectories or files.

Well thats strange it was a link from the fellow who did the project.
Didn't work for me either just now.
But try http://asl.epfl.ch/index.html?content=research/systems/Alice/alice.php

Alice is pic and swatch motors

this one is a Stamp http://www.robotics.com/robomenu/fric.html

I thought Adam was the one who originally posted the info on Alice late
springish?
Or was it Roman?

Very cool little project ;-]

It's still in the google cache:
http://www.google.com/search?q=cache%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fdmthttp://www.epfl.ch%2Fisr%2Fasl%2Fprojects%2Falice_pj.html

Alas, no pictures

The internet archive (wayback machine) fortunately has it and the images:
http://web.archive.org/web/20011101073238/dmthttp://www.epfl.ch/isr/asl/projects/alice_pj.html

Please cut and paste (remove spaces) if the line is broken up into more
than one line.

Wow, very cool stuff. It seems Alice has been upgraded since the page in
the archives that Adam mentioned. It now runs an f877 :)

David,
                    $$$ ALERT $$$ !
Myonic has a 3 mm dia motor - it's a stepper - only a few steps / rev.
They show a picture with a ladybug crawling on one, looks like Godzilla.
They also have nice little gearboxes to go with them.
BUT ---- $$$
