What is cooler than a robotic gloved hand? How about a robot glove that fires foam darts that you build yourself! Teaching kids about pneumatics and the physics of air pressure, this awesome engineering project is not only fun to build, but also fun to use. With 139 parts and a colorful step-by-step instruction manual with helpful QR codes for building, troubleshooting, additional experiments and more science information, this bionic blaster engages the budding engineer in your family. Adjusts to nearly any hand size – whether right or left-handed. You provide scissors or diagonal cutters, a Phillips head screwdriver and an internet connection.
Have a blast with this awesome engineering project! Construct an air-powered robotic glove that launches safe foam darts. Learn about pneumatics — technologies that use pressurized air to perform work — and many cool mechanisms as you assemble the blaster from over 100 pieces. After you’ve built and tested your blaster, slide it on and strap it to your wrist. The first pull of the trigger causes the scissor arm to lift up the barrels and launch the first dart. Pull the trigger two more times to launch the next two darts. Grab some additional darts from the reserve clip under your wrist and reload. The blaster is entirely powered by your hand and the amazing pneumatic system — no batteries or motors required!
Turn the dial to rotate the two outer launchers for a wider spread. Adjust the location of the wrist strap to fit almost all hands. A full-color, step-by-step manual guides you through assembling and using the blaster and provides fascinating scientific information about pneumatic systems and the physics of air. Compatible with many standard foam darts.
