Fascinated by the unique synergy of nature and mechanics, Ugears continues to explore the amazing world of automatism, presenting an animated kinetic sculpture - the butterfly model.
Each of its details should ensure that it fits in with its own space and plays its own role in the functioning of this outstanding mechanism. Equipped with a rubber band motor moves the mechanical machine, which mimics the flutter of a butterfly without external power source or batteries.
The delicate wings of the butterfly are made of craft paper. The lower wings change their angle of inclination when the model is working, to make sure that the movements of the machine are similar to those of a real butterfly.
Two front pairs of his legs move while the wings flutter. The rear leg pair is used as the start-stop lever of the rubber band motor. Your butterfly comes with two wings: one colored and one less bright in bige, which you can paint as you like.
The butterfly sits on a flower-shaped platform. The elastic carrier bounces lightly on the model and makes its movements more realistic, so that the butterfly dances in the air and flutters as it approaches the flower. The butterfly is skeletonized, so you can see and understand the work of gears and blocks and understand the mechanism.
