There’s something about building mechanical models from the ground up and seeing them work. UGEARS allows you to do just that!
As a product of Kiev-based Ukrainian Gears, UGEARS are comprised of 11 mechanical models that can be set in motion with rubber band engines, cranks, or just plain gravity. The pieces have been laser-cut, and fit together easily like pieces of a puzzle. Of the 11 unique models, perhaps the best one is the steam locomotive shown below. Measuring in at 12” long, the elaborate kinetic sculpture consists of over 480 pieces and even runs on a track.
Check out the UGEAR locomotive below and if you’re interested, back it on Kickstarter because this is sure to be a hit!
