Biomimetic Animal Machines
Construct a whole zoo's worth of remote-controlled animals with mechanical insides covered by colourful plastic “skins.” The animals all move using different mechanisms, each one mimicking the movement of the real animal it represents. A two-button remote control unit moves the small, lightweight motor forward and in reverse, allowing the models to move forward or backward.
Build an elephant that walks, a scorpion that crawls along, and a cute little penguin that waddles. Construct a rabbit that bounds forward, a crab that scurries sideways, and an orangutan that climbs hand over hand along a string. You can even build a couple of dinosaurs: a Tyrannosaurus rex that walks on two legs and a Pteranodon that “flies” along a cord. Learn about animal locomotion and biomechanics as you build each model. When you are done, use the same 100 building pieces to dream up your own mechanical animal creations! You can even mix up the animal skins in funny ways to make outrageous hybrid animals.
A full-colour, 64-page step-by-step illustrated manual helps kids assemble all of the models, and teaches them about the animals they are modelling and the ways different animals move.
A great childrens science toy for junior engineers in the making from age 8 years old upwards and brilliant for adult and child interaction.
