This UGears model Horse tells the story about the reliability of the mode of transport in the middle ages before Steam and technology took over the world where travelers use strong and fast horses for voyages.
In walking mechanisms designed by many engineers before the balance were realized using additional extremities or other extra-supports. UGears designers paid special attention to the anatomy because it was important to make our Horse quadrupedal. And they found a smarter way to achieve stability in motion. The innovative mechanism of this beauty makes the Bionic Horse a real walking quadruped. All the joints and movements closely resemble those of a real horse, but powered by rubber bands, gears, cranks and gravity. The bionic heart of your horse is a pendulum installed in the chest of the mech. The oscillations of the pendulum slow the transmission of energy from the rubber band motor to the movable elements extending the working time of the mechanism.
The mane and tail of the horse are made of flexible rubber bands to flow in the wind as the horse gallops away. When moving, the Bionic Horse shakes its head swaying its soft rubber mane.
The UGears Mechanoid Bionic Horse model kit is made of sustainably sourced high-grade wood and has everything you might need for assembly. The high-grade plywood is cut into different templates by a laser method providing precise hairline cuts. The templates are marked with different colors, and there is a truly easy to follow instructions in 11 languages (English, German, Ukrainian, French, Polish, Spanish, Russian, Turkish, Italian, Chinese and Korean). Assembling requires neither glue nor special tools to turn the boat into a functional horse.
The UGears mechanoid Bionic Horse or Mechanical horse is a tribute to early automatons and the wonderful attempts to create the walking machine by the Ancient Greeks, inventors of Japan and China, and Leonardo da Vinci himself.

Marble Run Chain Hoist
What is it about marble runs that makes them so compelling? Kids (and adults!) can watch marbles going down a track, passing through various obstacles, for hours on end. Marble runs are fascinating, they grab our attention, and yet they're also relaxing. Marble runs and races have become an unexpected YouTube phenomenon, with thousands of videos racking up millions of views. You choose a marble to watch, to cheer for, you wonder which path it will take, you put yourself in the marble's place, imagining that you are right there with the glass ball, going on a marvelous, unknown journey, with twists and turns and surprises around every corner. The thrill is even greater when you've built the marble run yourself. Now you're not just passively watching a video, you're fully invested because you built a wondrous machine with your own hands.
Presenting the UGears mechanical Marble Run Chain Hoist model—an exciting combination of art and engineering. The Marble Run Chain Hoist is both a beautiful kinetic sculpture and an intricate toy that teaches as it entertains. This DIY wooden marble run features a chain hoist powered by a hand crank, and a series of tracks, each with its own unique and fun obstacle or element. Turn the handle clockwise to set the machine in motion, and watch as the wooden chain hoist collects and lifts the marbles to the top of the machine, where a 3-way switch distributes them on different tracks. One marble plunges down a chute with a loop-the-loop at the bottom; the next tumbles down the various stages of the cascades, while three others are collected in the accumulator then released down one of three short tracks. All marbles pass through the common tray or collector before returning to the chain hoist to be lifted on their next journey.
The Marble Run Chain Hoist is modular and can be connected to other Marble Run Chain Hoists (2 or 4 models can be connected, in pairs) using special connectors (included). Attach two mechanical Marble Run Chain Hoist models together frontally, or connect four together, both frontally and laterally, for a mini system of hoists and runs.

Looking back into the history of mechanics once again, Ugears couldn't miss such an important and interesting period, in a not-so-distant past, as the 50's. Rockabilly music, swing dresses, bobby socks and, of course, magnificent luxury cars and convertibles: feel a part of the time with our new ingenious work – The Dream Cabriolet VM-05.
The 50s had given automobiles a completely new look, producing absolutely unique recognizable designs. The Dream Cabriolet VM-05 is a highly detailed and extremely realistic tribute of the Ugears’ designers and engineers to the automobile industry highlights of that decade.
The model is traditionally equipped by a rubber-band motor that powers the mechanism and drives the car. The Cabriolet can go forward or back. To ensure you can take a close look at the beautiful eight-cylinder V configuration engine in operation, we introduced the idle mode. In this mode, your Cabriolet will stay still letting you look under the hood to appreciate the beauty of the moving gears. Should you want to put your vehicle in motion, pull the transmission lever on the steering column.
Both front and rear wheels of the model are suspended to make its ride ultimately smooth. Use the steering wheel to move the front wheel coupling and send the Dream Cabriolet in the direction you choose.
To make the design of this unique model even more realistic, Ugears engineers added a few important elements that make the automobile look extremely lifelike. We believe you will enjoy the window cranks and fully functional windshield wipers as well as a lifting jack and a repair toolkit mounted under the rear trunk.
Another mechanical feature is the trunk and hood opening mechanisms that add some extra-vividness to this highly detailed vintage vehicle.
Find your favorite retro radio station and your Dream Cabriolet will take you into the dreamlike 50s to share the best of what the decade has to offer.
The Ugears Dream Cabriolet VM-05 model kit is made of sustainably sourced high grade wood and has everything you will need for assembly. The quality of the parts is top-notch: a laser method is used for cutting items from a plywood board that provides precise hairline cuts. The details have to be pulled out of the boards and assembled to create a complete convertible. Like all other Ugears models, the Cabriolet comes with step-by-step, full-color, truly easy to follow instructions in 11 languages (English, German, Ukrainian, French, Polish, Spanish, Russian, Japan, Italian, Chinese and Korean) and requires neither glue nor special tools to be fully assembled into functional self-propelled Cabriolet.

Aim high with an exciting and curious model from Ugears, the Flight Starter, a portable hand catapult loaded with smart mechanics and a lot of fun.
The Flight Starter is a mechanical launcher for light flying airplane models, three of which you will find in the kit. The model’s one of a kind design is a pure work of imagination that produced a look resembling something from outer space – a star ship, a shuttle or a blaster gun from a science fiction adventure film. The all sci-fi design is implemented in the Ugears skeleton steampunk style that allows you to look inside the working mechanism which you get to assemble with your own hands.
The launcher is equipped with a rubber band motor that provides tension that powers your plane when released. The trigger that sets off the mechanism has a safety lock. The tension and therefore the distance your aircraft is going to cover are controlled by a winding crank. The range of your new cool ballistic model can exceed 30 meters – depending on the “bolts” used and how tight the crank was wound. A special support makes the crank a part of the platform for the aircraft you will launch.
A high quality plywood and ergonomic design ensure that the launcher comfortably sits in your hand and allows you to aim more precisely.
The kit also includes a plywood glider and two paper airplanes you can use with your Flight Starter along with those planes you want to design by yourself. Depending on how you adjust the angles of the wings and other elements of a plane before launching it into the sky, you can make it go into a loop, barrel-roll, nose-up and other fun manoeuvres.
If you’d like to build your own aircraft, Ugears designers suggest you use relatively light materials: paper, cardboard, balsa, etc. The model kit is comprised of 198 parts and has everything you will need for assembly. You will work with a natural material that is nice to the touch and gives you a very pleasant feel. Like all Ugears models, the Flight Starter comes with step-by-step, full-color, truly easy to follow instructions in 11 languages (English, German, Ukrainian, French, Polish, Spanish, Russian, Japan, Italian, Chinese and Korean) and requires neither glue nor special tools to be fully assembled into functional mechanical launcher. The precut parts are made from high-quality and sustainable wooden material and fit together like a puzzle.
This model of immaculate craftsmanship tasks you to join together several sheets of finely pre-cut plywood to create attractive structures without any glue or chemical. It comes in the form of a puzzle and challenges the owner to enjoy the thrill of solving how to piece this puzzle together to become one, with the help of the instruction booklet supplied with the kit that contains precise information that will guide you all the way through the assembly and installation.
UGears Safe is DIY heaven, and it draws its design inspiration from a real life safe closet box. This 3D IQ puzzle for adults consists of 179 parts that are fun to assemble without glue.

You can secure your own UGears Mechanical 3D Puzzle which comes with a personal lock combination that allows you to Store your precious belongings – your favorite candies, chocolates, jewelry, letters or whatever.
The UGears Trimaran Merihobus is a classic multihull sailboat designed in the skeleton style to show off a lot of details such as bulkheads, frames, rigging, and hulls, which makes her a very realistic miniature copy of real-life prototypes.
The sailboat is made in style to ensure good visibility of the mechanism and the design of the sailboat, including such details as bulkheads, frames and beams. The rear rudder blade is steered by the ropes connected through the pontoons to the master wheel on the stern.
Just like on real trimarans this UGears mainsail and fore staysail on the mast can be set or taken in. The mainsail of the Trimaran Merihobus is set on the mast groove with the main top halyard. The staysail “rolls up” on a stay. At the front under the bowsprit, you will find the staysail’s winch drum. Sail booms are operated by a lever that pulls the sheet of the boom.
The model allows you to create your own flag design for the ship. it comes with several templates and with the aid of the winch and hoists, you can ensign your ship.
The Trimaran Merihobus uses a strong but thin white thread for its rigging. This ensures the structure of the boat remains neat and light even with a lot of details while making the mast and other elements remain in perfect positions.
The UGears Trimaran Merihobus has a lovely finishing touch in the form of a tiny seahorse carved in the bow of the boat. The curious sea creature also known as the merihobus gave your boat her name.
The Ugears Trimaran Merihobus model kit is made of sustainably sourced high-grade wood and has everything you might need for assembly. The high-grade plywood is cut into different templates by a laser method providing precise hairline cuts. The templates are marked by colors, and there is a truly easy to follow instructions.

Marble Run Stepped Hoist
Introducing the mechanical Marble Run Stepped Hoist, the second in a series of Ugears modular marble runs. This fun and fascinating wooden marble run features an ingenious 3-stepped alternating lift mechanism and a set of new features to hold your attention as you watch the marbles make their cyclical journey. Multiple tracks and elements are packed into a compact space in this DIY marble run.
The model has a 3-stage alternating lift that hands the marbles back and forth as they climb to the top to embark on their amusement park adventures. Which marble will take which track, and which will make it down first? The wood Marble Run Stepped Hoist features a 3-marble accumulator in which the third ball opens the gates for the trapped first and second marbles, sending all three along their divergent paths. There are three tracks: the first consists of a 2-marble accumulator and serpentine run, the second is a hammer swing inside a C-shaped cradle, and the third has a whirlpool or funnel. All marbles eventually pass through the collection tray and into the seesaw lift. A rocker switch mechanism either sends the marbles back along the return track to the 3-stepped lift, or (and this is where it gets really exciting!) into another attached Ugears marble run.
We have designed the Ugears line of marble runs to be modular, that is, each model works as a standalone, or it can be connected frontally or laterally to other Ugears marble runs of the same or different design (2 or 4 models can be connected, in pairs, using the special connectors included in the kit). The rocker mechanism at the end of the run can send marbles in one direction or the other, or both directions (depending on the attached weight), returning marbles to the original hoist or sending them to a different marble run. With adjoining marble runs you now have an amazing, complex system of interconnected elements, all powered by a single crank. It's like a miniature amusement park! Keep an eye on your favorite marble—who knows where it will end up when it will return to its starting point, or what rides it will take along the way!
The Ugears Marble Run Stepped Hoist is an exciting combination of art and engineering. It is both a beautiful kinetic sculpture and an intricate toy that teaches as it entertains. As you build this ingenious wooden marble run, you will learn about the interplay of drive gears and driven gears and the function of counterweights. Turn the crank handle clockwise to set the machine in motion, and prepare to be mesmerized as the alternating stepped ladder collects, lifts, and passes the marbles back and forth until they reach the top of the machine to start their runs. UGears marble runs are strong. Rigidity in the structure is achieved through a strong base and tightened frame parts. A muscular gear drive delivers power to both lifts: the main 3-stepped alternating lift and the auxiliary seesaw lift.
Kids (and adults!) enjoy watching marbles going up and down tracks, passing through various obstacles, and racing through a course. Marble tracks are fascinating, they grab our attention, and yet they're also relaxing. Marble runs and races have become an unexpected online video phenomenon, with thousands of videos racking up millions of views. You choose marble to cheer for, you wonder which path it will take, you put yourself in the marble's place, imagining that you are going on a marvelous, unknown journey, with twists and turns and surprises around every corner. The thrill is even greater when you've built the marble track yourself—now you're not just passively watching a video, you're fully invested because you built a wondrous machine with your own hands.

UGears Aero Clock
The time has come! For years, we've been hearing the same question again and again from our loyal customers: "Can Ugears create a working clock model kit, one that actually keeps accurate time?" A working mechanical wooden clock has long been our #1 "most-requested" new design. Your dream has also been our dream, and our team of dedicated Ugears engineers and designers has been working hard to bring this shared dream into reality. Finally, the wait is over. Ugears is proud to present the Aero Clock, a fully-functioning DIY wall clock with a pendulum.
The Aero Clock isn't just a 3D wooden mechanical model or a pretty showpiece. The Ugears Clock is an actual working clock that you can build yourself, mount to a wall, wind up, then watch as the seconds, minutes, and hours tick by. The Aero Clock is an ingenious puzzle and DIY clock mechanism, unlike any other clock. It is a lovely piece of precise engineering that reveals the workings of a weighted pendulum clock to builders and viewers alike. Like all Ugears models, it also has that extra touch of whimsy, to captivate and charm our growing legion of fans.
This simple-yet-elegant Ugears clock is driven by the force of gravity pulling down a weighted bag (you can fill the bag with sand or salt). Raise the bag on its pulleys to wind the clock. As the weight slowly descends, it rotates a drive gear, which then rotates an escape wheel through a reducer. The clock features an adjustable weighted pendulum that interacts with the escape wheel through the steady tick-tock of the anchor mechanism. You can adjust the clock's ticking action to the second, by sliding the pendulum's top and bottom weights. The reducer also transmits rotation to an hour disc and a minute disc. One of the interesting features of our Aero Clock is that time is not read with rotating hands on a clock face, but rather a fixed pointer indicates time on the slowly-rotating, numbered hour and minute discs. Moreover, these discs rotate counterclockwise—did you know that before standardization, some clocks moved clockwise while others moved counterclockwise? In the role of "cuckoo,” the Ugears Aero Clock features a model hot air balloon. The suspended balloon rapidly descends when the hour strikes, then slowly rises again over the course of the next hour.
The theme of the Aero Clock is early aeronautics. Take a trip back in time to the dawn of flight and the "balloon-mania" that seized France and England in 1783 on the occasion of the first free aerial voyage in a balloon. This was followed two years later by the first aerial crossing of the English Channel by intrepid aeronauts Jean-Pierre Blanchard and John Jeffries. We love this wooden model clock's steampunk sensibility and spirit of adventure, and we think you will too! Imagine yourself a discoverer of new horizons and a conqueror of the four winds. The casing and intriguing wooden clock mechanism represent an airbase located among the clouds, where zephyrs blow and filtered rays of sunlight dapple the machinery, while you, in the role of aeronaut, launch a new voyage of exploration on the hour.
The Ugears wooden model clock kit celebrates the role of clocks in exploration. Did you know the problem of calculating longitude, critical to accurate navigation at sea, was solved with a clock? The idea was proposed by Dutch mathematician Gemma Frisius in 1530, but it wasn't until the mid-18th century when English clockmaker John Harrison developed a series of shipboard clocks so precise (accurate to within a ⅕ of a second per day) that ship captains could, at last, calculate their position at sea to within a few nautical miles. By knowing the exact time back in London (Greenwich Meridian Time, or GMT), and calculating the time at current position with celestial observation, navigators could calculate where they were on the earth's surface. Latitude had been solved by the Phoenicians as early as 600 B.C. with celestial reckoning—measuring the altitude of the sun at noon, or the angle made between the North Star (or other navigational stars) and the horizon. But the longitude problem would bedevil explorers for another 2,000 years. Harrison was eventually awarded the £20,000 first prize (roughly $1.5 million today) established in Parliament's Longitude Act of 1714, after demonstrating the accuracy of his masterful clocks at sea. Now you too can become a clockmaker, with the Ugears Aero Clock model kit!

UGears STEM LAB Counter
Learn howthe COUNTERworks:
The «Counter» model registers repetitive actions. It is an integral part of a device called an “Odometer”. The model has three cylinder gears with numbers from 0 to 9 and a Geneva Drive. This combination allows you to see an interesting mechanical feature: when the reciprocating motion of the click-button using the Geneva Drive mechanism turns into the rotary motion of the cylinder gears with numbers.The Counter provides two options of data registering: click-button on the roof of its body, and a turn handle on its side. Pressing the click-button or turning the handle makes the Counter shift by one place. When the count passes 9, the Geneva Drive catches the next register cylinder and adds it to the count. Altogether, the three-digit display of the Counter can register values from 1 to 999. You can open the front panel of the counter and reset it manually. Try counting steps on your way home. Or how many people you meet on a stroll through the park. How about, the number of blue cars passing by your house during one hour? Count stairs at home, at school or at a friend’s house.
A counter, as a key part of odometer mechanism, was invented by an Ancient Greek mathematician and engineer Hero of Alexandria who lived in 10-70 AD. It measured the length of the path by counting the number of rotations of the wheel. Later, the counter was improved and completed with a reducer that reduced the number of the wheel's revolutions depending on the measuring system (miles, leagues, kilometers) and showed reduced data on the display.
These days, counters are used to count the number of passengers, visitors of different
events, cars passing through certain check point, sets and scores in sport,
items on a production line, etc.

UGears STEM LAB Gearbox
Learn howthe manual GEARBOXworks:
The Gearbox is a stylised educational model, an interactive study guide to the mechanism, only for learning its essentials and principles of working. A mechanical gearbox is a reducer that provides speed and torque conversions from a motor to the driving wheels. After assembly, you can experiment with the Ugears manual Gearsbox, by turns, choose I, II, III, or reverse with a kinematic pair of gears with different ratios and, rotating the actuator handle clock-wise, you can watch and control the rotation speed of the layshaft and drive shaft. In aPosition “N” – idlein which both clutch gears of layshaft remain uncoupled and idling; theFirst Gearmakes the layshaft and gears rotate with the lowest speed; theSecond Gearlets the drive shaft along with the flywheel rotate with an average speed and theThird Gearallows the layshaft and all gears rotate with the highest speed. Switch on the Reverse gear and see how the driving clutch gear moves to the left towards gear “R” and connects to it transferring the rotation to the lower gear arrangement and propelling the layshaft and all gears to rotate in reverse.
The invention of the gearbox belongs to the famous German engineer Karl Benz.
A gearbox is mainly used in the automobile industry as a part of the car transmission mechanism that transfers torque from the engine's shaft to the wheels.
