Description

Ugears launches its dinosaur automaton collection with the most fearsomepredator to ever walk the earth: the Tyrannosaurus Rex. This mechanical DIYwooden model of a walking tyrannosaur is driven by a metal spring, whichtransmits power through a reduced gear, turning the axle that drives the legs.A clever system of links and connections allows this king of the dinosaurs towalk on its own two feet—the first bi-pedal walker in the Ugears collection!An eccentric gear sets the tail swaying in synchronous motion with the legs,helping the dinosaur keep its balance and not fall to the side, just as innature.

Up to 13 meters in length and 9 metric tonnes in weight, tyrannosaurs hadthe largest teeth of any carnivorous dinosaur, capable of tearing flesh andcrunching bone. They also had highly-developed senses of smell, on par withvultures, and incredibly acute eyesight—better than eagles. They were the apexpredators of the late Cretaceous period, roaming over what is now western NorthAmerica, in environments ranging from bayous to semi-arid plains. Their giantrear legs and swaying tail made them efficient walkers, capable of stalking preyover long distances before closing in for the kill with a burst of speed. Theycould also smell carrion at a great distance then chase other predators from thecarcass, making them the bullies of the Cretaceous lunch room.

This amazing walking dinosaur model is a wind-up DIY wooden scale model of afull-grown Tyrannosaurus Rex. The top of the tail conceals the winding key.Remove the key and insert into the ratchet mechanism on the dinosaur's leftside, making sure the head of the left femur is clear of the opening (if youneed to, flip the on/off switch to the “on” position, then spin the gearabove the T-Rex's shoulders to move the leg). Flip the on/off switch to the“off” position (toward the head) and wind the mechanism half a dozen timesclockwise, replacing the key to its position between the tail and body. Placethe Tyrannosaurus on a smooth, flat surface, holding the automaton by the body(don't squeeze the legs together!), flip the on switch and release. YourTyrannosaur will stalk away, in search of its next meal, its tail swinging andjaws crunching up and down in anticipation. It's actually kind ofterrifying!
