  • It’s the stuff of nightmares, or a mechanical model-maker’s dreams, depending on one’s perspective!
  • Introducing the Ugears Hexapod Explorer: part insect, part robot, part extra-terrestrial rover
  • Driven by a powerful spring motor, the Hexapod Explorer can walk up to 3 metres on its own legs, without need of an auxiliary or supporting wheel like other models have
  • The ability to bear its own weight, on the legs alone, allows the Hexapod Explorer to navigate slightly rough terrain, like a planetary rover stepping out of the capsule to explore new worlds
  • Another amazing feature that makes our walker unique is that the Hexapod Explorer comes with a variable speed dial
  • When the Hexapod stops walking, pick it up and watch the legs come to life and flail about, just like a real insect, crab or spider would do
  • The Hexapod Explorer wooden model kit has 388 pieces and features a strong metal spring that powers the robot's walking action, and rubber band foot pads for better traction on smooth surfaces
  • With a ratchet mechanism you don't have to hold the key while winding to prevent slippage—potential energy is stored with each twist, without slippage, until the spring is fully loaded
  • The Hexapod Explorer can traverse rough surfaces and even step over obstacles of 1-2 cm
  • Crank the model up, set it down, choose the desired speed using the dial on the Hexapod's head, then release the "go" switch at the rear to set the model in motion
  • The Ugears Hexapod Explorer is a unique gift idea for friends or family members who love nature, insects, robots, model building, DIY projects, puzzles, or for anyone who appreciates outstanding mechanical and aesthetic design
