Wind- Powered 'Artificial Life" Robotics Kit

Blowing into the fan of this innovative kit activates the robotic legs to walk against the on-coming breeze. The wind power is conveyed to the legs by 3 gears. Comprised of over 120 parts, this approx. 6” wide plastic model kit assembles in less than 2 hours. Includes easy to-follow assembly instructions but requires a utility knife that is not included.

Designed by Theo Jansen, a Dutch artist famous for fusing science with art by constructing over-sized animated mechanisms out of industrial materials, this kit is based on his largest design-“Animaris Rhinoceros Transport”. The 24-page science guide gives you the history of the real Giant Beast that Theo Jansen started building in 1990.

For ages 8+.
