What does a typical geek when he has free time? Watching favorite TV series, mows the beard, plays Call of Duty? Perhaps, but that's only if he there is some really interesting classes. The man who is fond of technology and trying to understand how everything works, probably will choose for a more fascinating hobby. One of them, we will talk about today.
In one of our we told you about a 3D puzzle from the company . The video caused a lot of positive reviews so we decided to share the products of this company. this is a startup, which has been producing unique wood designers «", «", «" etc., going without a nail and without a single drop of glue. Buying their product, you get a box with several sheets of plywood in which the parts cut using laser cutting.
Armed with instructions, in the order you squeeze the parts — and slowly assembling it. The only the fixing elements according to the project developers, are supplied toothpicks and sometimes — bands like those tied notes.
Interestingly, this enterprise was possible thanks to the participation of children in the Kickstarter campaign. Their project was so interesting to investors, that instead of the claimed $ 20,000 has been collected 400 000. After receiving the necessary financing, the developers have created some amazing products that exceeded customer expectations.
We have already managed to collect a few toys and let's face it: this experience will be remembered for a long time. Due to the fact that the Assembly process is not so simple, it is guaranteed to take more than one night. But the joy of what you gathered with your own hands, outweigh all the negativity that could arise from the fact that in the Assembly process you have something did not work.
But the main buzz is that it's not just a pretty static figures made of plywood: it is a complete mechanisms that work. Hard to believe, but of the handful of wooden pieces you will be able in all seriousness to gather safe that is locked with a combination lock, wind-up truck that can move forward or backward, fully functional timer and more.
The range Ugears there are a large number of 3D puzzles of any complexity, designed for different ages. For example, the model "a" — a rather simple design of gears, which will allow you to understand the structure "of the Maltese mechanism" which converts uniform rotational motion into intermittent.
Model "is" probably intended for children: spin the gear and watching on a wooden platform with alternate figurines of characters. A great story for the weekend: first, we jointly assemble the toy and then put some performance.
"" would be more experienced and diligent: if done correctly, this model will be able to move independently, and with a two speed transmission.
One of the most complex models — "", the Assembly of which took us most of the time. Just see with what thoroughness the producers recreated the mechanism of the car. In addition to such pleasant things, like opening door and hood, the model also has working suspension: twisted handle mechanical plant — and now the truck is on the way, both forwards and backwards.
By the Way, to the truck, you can buy a trailer or something . For example, we got such fire escape: not only is it spinning freely, but is put forward. Wasn't that great?
Rarely, when an adult is able to captivate and motivate the kind of toy, especially if it doesn't apply to video games and consoles. But 3D puzzles Ugears succeeded. In recent weeks our office has been divided into two camps: some were collected and others were encouraging and interested in the results. And we realized that it was absolutely the perfect gift for the person who has everything useful to life already have and which you want to surprise.
Will Soon begin a barrage of holidays, and if you haven't decided, I advise you to pay attention to these interesting toys. Their prices range from 700 to 6000 rubles, so it's fun for everyone. But if you have already collected with his own hands one of those models, you'll want to have at home a collection of such wood works. By the way, the most important thing: if you're planning to buy something from the lineup Ugears, don't forget to enter the promo code Hinews17 and get 20% discount.
