Experiment with the physics of air pressure and suction!
A robot that defies gravity?! That’s what you get with the Air Walker from Gigo!
A 4-legged robot that uses an ingenious system of suction cups and pumps to crawl along smooth, vertical surfaces such as windows.
A follow-up to the award-winning Geckobot STEM experiment kit, the Air Walker uses technology similar to that found in its reptilian predecessor, but with easier assembly.
Your Air Walker can crawl in a straight line, to the left, or to the right, while a special mechanism makes the robot’s head move back and forth as its body moves forward.
You can also build 4 other models with the same components and learn how suction and mechanical devices can be used in different real-world applications.
A vacuum-suction machine sticks to and lifts flat panels, while a robot with just 2 suction cups rotates around a central pivot point.
This hands-on construction kit brings engineering and physics to life as it
demonstrates the power of air pressure at work. A 24-page, full-colour manual guides your model building and experiments with clear step-by-step illustrated instructions.
