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.
Internal motor spins a cylindrical plate with a weight (a screw) placed on one side creating an up down rapid vibrating movement. This vibration is then conveyed to 3 rods that smoothly propel the model forward in a sliding type movement.
Get ready, because here comes a super fun to assemble, super fast, super colorful Mechanical Rabbit. Motor rotating power is transferred to the legs via crank plates to make the rabbit hop.
SparkFun's minimal design approach to Arduino. This is a 5V Arduino running the 16MHz bootloader.
This is an Enclosed 4-wheel drive remote control robot kit. It uses four powerful wheelchair motors and the inside robot cavity has plenty of room for electronics.
