Build your own gecko and bring it to life! This astonishing wall-climbing robot from Thames and Kosmos has a motorized air suction system that enables it to walk vertically up and down perfectly smooth surfaces, including glass, plastic, whiteboards, and glossy laminates. The battery-powered motor drives an innovative gear and suction system that keeps the legs moving up and down the surface. When the Geckobot's tongue hits an object in front of it, it triggers the motor to go in reverse, sending the gecko back down the wall. While it walks, its head and tail move from side to side, just like a real lizard. You can build six other models -- an industrial robotic arm with vacuum suction cup grippers, car with suction cup wheels, octopus with suction cup arms, crawling insect, window-cleaning robot, and vacuum holder device -- and conduct experiments with suction to learn about air pressure and physics. Includes 24-page full-color manual. Ages 8 and up. Kit measures 14.6" x 11.5" x 3.1". Imported.
