The UGears mechanoid horse is a tribute to early automatons and the wonderful attempts to create the walking machine by the Ancient Greeks, inventors of Japan and China, and Leonardo da Vinci himself. This UGears model Horse tells the story about the reliability of the mode of transport in the middle ages before Steam and technology took over the world where travelers use strong and fast horses for voyages.
The innovative mechanism of this beautiful model makes the "bionic horse" a real walking quadruped. All the joints and movements closely resemble those of a real horse but powered by rubber bands, gears, cranks, and gravity. The bionic heart of your horse is a pendulum installed in the chest. The oscillations of the pendulum slow the transmission of energy from the rubber band motor to the movable elements extending the working time of the mechanism.
The mane and tail of the horse are made of flexible rubber bands to flow in the wind as the horse gallops away. When moving, the Bionic Horse shakes its head, swaying its soft rubber mane.
The UGears Mechanoid Bionic Horse model kit is made of sustainably sourced high-grade wood and has everything for assembly. The high-grade plywood is cut by a laser for hairline cuts. The templates are marked with different colors, and there are easy-to-follow instructions in 11 languages (English, German, Ukrainian, French, Polish, Spanish, Russian, Turkish, Italian, Chinese, and Korean). Assembling requires neither glue nor special tools.
