David came with ideas about pencils. I attatched a pager motor to each pencil. We used three pencils with pager motors to make pencils that were in a pencil holder move. When pencils were vibrating, they made much louder noise with a pencil holder than we expected. To reduce the noise, we cover the inside of a pencil holder with soft material. Finally pencils could make softer sound as if they were talking.
Initially when I attached motors to the pencils,I used regular wires, but these presented a big obstacle in the way og vibrating the pencils. So we borrowed tiny wires from Tim and it helped to make the pencils move.
