Ugears Horse-Mechanoid  –  a unique assembling model that  joins nature and mechanics. It’s a Ugears’  tribute to  early automatons, the attempts to create a walking machine made by the Ancient Greeks, inventors of Japan and  China, and Leonardo da Vinci himself. In walking mechanisms designed by many engineers before  balance  was  realized by means of additional extremities or other extra-supports. Ugears designers paid special attention to the anatomy because it was important to make our Horse a real walking quadruped. And we 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. To animate the legs the engineers implemented a claw mechanism.

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 Horse-Mechanoid won’t carry you over the horizon – the distance it can cover in one winding is quite limited. Although, it is enough to observe the work of the unique mechanism and enjoy the beauty of the mechanics of the model.

The mane and tail of the horse that are meant to flow in the wind are made of flexible rubber bands. When moving, the Horse-Mechanoid shakes its head swaying its soft rubber mane.
