The amazing, the stupendous, the balancing gyrobot is here!
A robot fit for the circus! With this kit, you can build a robot that walks, step by step, along a tightrope. How? Thanks to the robot’s main component, a gyroscope, it can maintain its balance and perform this fun trick without falling over!
Through eight experiments, you can explore the astonishing powers of the motorized gyroscope and understand the physics behind it. Experiment with getting the robot to walk on different surfaces: a tightrope, on a solid tabletop, on a soft surface, and even on your arm! You can also experiment with the balancing behavior of the motorized gyroscope by itself, testing its ability to balance on its edge, on your finger, on a pole, and dangling from a string.
A full-color, 24-page, illustrated experiment manual provides step-by-step assembly instructions and scientific explanations.
