Mechanoid Pferd 3D Holz Puzzle Bausatz
Before the Age of Steam took over the world, drastically changing every sphere of human activity, the only reliable transport available to travelers had been strong and fast horses. Ugears looks away from high-end technologies and ultrahigh-speed to appreciate the time of traveling by horse-back with a model joining nature and mechanics – the Bionic Horse.
Making the Horse quadrupedal was one of the project’s main challenges. In the walking mechanisms designed by many engineers before, the stability of the moving construction was realized by means of additional extremities or other extra-supports. Ugears’ wizards have found a smarter way to achieve stability in motion. The absolutely unique mechanism of the model that makes your Horse a real quadruped is a brand new innovation developed by Ugears and presented for you to test for the first time ever.
The designers paid special attention to the anatomy of the animal’s legs to make sure that all the joints and movements closely resemble those of a real horse. To animate the legs the engineers implemented a claw mechanism.
The bionic heart of your horse is a pendulum installed in the chest of the mech. The oscillations of the pendulum slow the transmission of energy from the rubberband motor to the movable elements extending the working time of the mechanism.
The Bionic Horse won’t carry you over the horizon – the distance it can cover in one winding is quite limited. Although, it is enough to observe the work of the unique mechanism and enjoy the beauty of the mechanics of the model.
The mane and tail of the horse that is meant to flow in the wind are made of flexible rubber bands. When moving, the mechanoid shakes its head swaying its soft rubber mane.
The mechanical horse is a tribute to early automatons, the attempts to create the walking machine made by the Ancient Greeks, inventors of Japan and China, and Leonardo da Vinci himself. Let go of the rush and haste of modern times. Withdraw yourself from the race for some time to hop on the relaxing – but no less exciting! – stroll with the new Bionic Horse from Ugears!
