UGears is a Ukrainian company that produces do-it-yourself, wooden model kits with moving parts using a patented plywood joint design. No tools or glue required!
All UGears models come with step-by-step, full-color, truly easy to follow instructions. Step-by step video instructions are also available online.
One of the more challenging UGears projects, the Mechanical Horse contains 410 parts and takes an estimated 9-10 hours to complete.
This model replicates a horse's structure and movement faithfully--its head even sways when it moves.
In the chest, an oscillating pendulum works as the horse's bionic heart. This heart transmits the rubber band's energy to create movement.
It even includes soft, flexible rubber bands for the mane and tail, which allows them to sway when the horse moves forward or shakes its head.
