Introducing the UGears Hexapod Explorer: part insect, part robot, part extraterrestrial rover. Driven by a powerful spring motor, the Hexapod Explorer can walk up to 3 meters on its legs, without the need of an auxiliary or supporting wheel like other models have. The ability to bear its weight, on the legs alone, allows the Hexapod Explorer to navigate slightly rough terrain, like a planetary rover stepping out of the capsule to explore new worlds. Another amazing feature that makes our walker unique is that the Hexapod Explorer comes with a variable speed dial.
This DIY Hexapod Explorer takes its place as champion walker among UGears' amazing family of mechanoids, automatons, 3D puzzles, and wooden mechanical marvels. We've created a purely mechanical, wooden walking robot, without electronic components.
The Hexapod Explorer can traverse rough surfaces and even step over obstacles of 1-2 cm. Crank the model up, set it down, choose the desired speed using the dial on the Hexapod's head, then release the "go" switch at the rear to set the model in motion. You can change speeds at any time, either mid-run or on the next go.
