This astonishing wall-climbing robot has a motorized air suction system that enables it to walk vertically up and down perfectly smooth surfaces, like glass, plastic, whiteboards, and glossy laminates.  The battery-powered motor drives an innovative gear system that produces a rotating motion, making the legs move back and fort and up and down, mimicking a real gecko - so two of the feet are touching the wall while the other two feet are lifted off of the wall, in an alternating motion.  At the same time, the gear system drives an air pump that creates a vacuum at the two feet tocuhing the wall while blowing air outward at the other two feet.  In this way, two of the feet are always holding the model to the wall, while the other two feet are pushing off and stepping forward.

You can build six other models and conduct experiments with suction to learn about air pressure and the mechanical physics of this unique device.  Build models of an inudstrial robotic arm with a vacuum suction cup gripper, crawling inch worm, smartphone holder, suction tow truck and car, ellipsograph, and suction gun.  A 24-page, full-color manual guides you through model building with step-by-step illustrated instructions and provides scientiic infromation and explanations.

Features:

  • Construct a gecko robot that clings to almost any surface!
  • 7 total possible models, including industrial arm robot and inch worm
  • Learn about air pressure and mechanical physics
  • Building kit develops self-reliance and problem-solving skills
  • Full-color 48-page instruction manual
