The designers paid special attention to the anatomy of the animal’s legs to make sure that all the joints and movements closely resemble those of a real horse. 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 rubberband motor to the movable elements extending the working time of the mechanism.
The Bionic Horse 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 mechanoid shakes its head swaying its soft rubber mane.
Mechanical horse is a 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. Let go of the rush and haste of modern times. Withdraw yourself from the race for some time to hop on the relaxing – but no less exciting! – stroll with the new Bionic Horse from Ugears!
