Ugears Mechanical Model | Hexapod Explorer
Your cat is going to love/hate us for this one!
Are you ready for the coolest crawler available anywhere on the model market? 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. You can make your robo-bug creep, crawl, or skitter at any speed you want! 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.
It’s the stuff of nightmares, or a mechanical model-maker’s dreams, depending on one’s perspective!
