Details

Geckobot is an astonishing wall-climbing robot with a motorized air suction system that enables it to walk vertically up and down perfectly smooth surfaces, like glass, plastic, whiteboards, and glossy laminates.

  • Battery-powered motor drives an innovative gear system that produces a rotating motion making the legs move back and forth and up and down, mimicking a real gecko… so 2 of the feet are touching the wall while the other 2 feet are lifted off of the wall, in an alternating motion
  • The gear system drives an air pump that creates a vacuum at the 2 feet touching the wall while blowing air outward at the other 2 feet
  • 2 of the feet are always holding the model to the wall, while the other 2 feet are pushing off and stepping forward
  • Build 7 different models and conduct experiments with suction to learn about air pressure and the mechanical physics of these unique devices including: wall-climbing gecko, industrial robotic arm with a vacuum suction cup gripper, crawling inch worm, smartphone holder, suction tow truck and car, ellipsograph, and suction gun
  • Full-color, 24-page manual guides you through model building with step-by-step illustrated instructions and provides scientific information and explanations
  • Awards include: 2016 ASTRA Best Toys for Kids (Construction), Toy Insider STEM 10 Award 2016, Featured in Purdue University's Engineering Gift Guide for 2016
  • Experiment Kit contains: Manual, 176 pieces
  • Requires: 2 AAA batteries (sold separately)
  • Ages: 8-Up
