Gravity Bugs - Free Climbing Microbot


By Thames & Kosmos


Going up! Build a mighty robotic bug that defies gravity to crawl up, down, and all around windows with ease! This motorized, multi-legged machine uses an ingenious system of suction cups to walk on smooth vertical surfaces like windows and glossy panels. Assemble the robot to learn about its inner mechanisms, including gears and an electric circuit complete with motor, battery, and switch. Then experiment to see which types of surfaces your Gravity Bug can climb best. Read about how suction cups work and how this robot climbs. This hands-on construction kit brings engineering and physics to life as it demonstrates the power of air pressure at work. An eight-panel, full-colour manual guides your model building with step-by-step illustrated instructions.

+ Build a small but powerful robot that walks up windows and other smooth, flat surfaces
+ Learn about air pressure and suction cups
+ Third-generation wall-walking technology with advanced suction-cup design
