We have at last entered the age of robotics. Welcoming this new era, Tamiya presents the all-new Robocraft series, introducing a line-up of products that feature a variety of form and movement. The first item of the series is a four-legged mechanical dog with various speed controls. The dog walks by transferring motor revolution to reciprocating motion via crank and linkage rod. Main body and legs are made of transparent yellow parts to allow viewing of internal mechanisms. Construction is simple as parts can easily be attached with screws. Wiring has also been made simple. For ages 10 and above.
Kit lets you become familiar with the mechanics of the dog's movement. All the parts needed to construct a mechanical dog are provided. Assembly and wiring have been made simple.
4 types of strides can be selected by changing the position of the holes on crank. Put this together with 2 types of gear ratios and you've got an 8-speed puppy. Cross link rods to make movement even more fluid and real.
Gripping parts at the end of each leg to change position according to speed for smooth movement.
Clear switch with yellow transparent parts adds a cool, futuristic look.
Tamiya presents its next Robocraft Series item, the 4-leg walking-type Mechanical Giraffe. Motor rotating power is transferred to the legs via crank plates to make the Giraffe walk.
When walking slowly, it also uses its front legs (just like they do down under) and when running quickly, it uses its tail for balance.
Use these roll pins to fix sprockets to a shaft and keep them locked in place.
This is a Custom MLT-JR tracked robot platform, equipped with a pan and tilt camera for inspection purposes. It comes complete with a custom controller with built-in tablet.
