The Thames & Kosmos The Amazing Tightrope-Walking Gyrobot offers to build a robot that walks, step by step, along a tightrope. 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 its amazing behaviors. 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.
The kit includes parts to build the robot and experimental setups, including a frame for the tightrope. By constructing the robot and performing experiments with the motorized gyroscope unit, young engineers can learn about the science of gyroscopic devices and the indispensable role they play in our lives. A full-color, 24-page, illustrated experiment manual provides step-by-step assembly instructions and scientific explanations.
