Now you can have fun learning about hydraulics, with this DIY Hydraulic Gearbots kit.

Hydraulic Gearbots are not all that common, but the fun thing about this one is that it is relatively easy to make, it will amaze your friends, and you can even launch popcorn into their mouth or toss marshmallows in the air!  It is even strong enough to knock down small block walls

Easy to make in about and hour or two, you can learn about levers, gears and simple mechanics as you assemble a hydraulic catapult and some super cool gear linkages! With the push of a syringe, you can set a range of gears into linear and rotational motion!

Inspired by drawings by Leonardo da Vinci, this DIY kit comes complete with great instructions and educational material! Made of sturdy, die-cut plywood, you can even paint it too!  There is even information about the different gears at the end.

Included in your kit - 41 die cut plywood pieces and a MDF base, 26 wooden dowels and spacers, 1 tube of glue, 1 piece of sandpaper, 2 syringes and tubing, 1 pack of soft clay, 1 elastic, 1 plastic cup and 36 rubber o-rings.
