It's probably less about vibration of the string and more about 
inductance between the drill motor and the guitar pickup.  This can be 
really taken advantage of in many ways.  Anything with a small speaker 
or electric motor will do it.  Toys, etc.  Go wild.  I love to use the 
now discontinued "megamouth" toys held up to my pickups.  Weird fun
