Educational interactive 3D Puzzles of widely-used mechanisms you can build with your own hands! Learn how they work and discover how they’re used in real life in the Ugears Augmented Reality app.

Counter

The Counter is a stylised educational model, an interactive study guide to the mechanism, only for learning its essentials and principles of working. It registers repetitive actions. It is an integral part of a device called an “Odometer”. The model has three cylinder gears with numbers from 0 to 9 and a Geneva Drive. This combination allows you to see an interesting mechanical feature: when the reciprocating motion of the click-button using the Geneva Drive mechanism turns into the rotary motion of the cylinder gears with numbers. The Counter provides two options of data registering: click-button on the roof of its body, and a turn handle on its side. Pressing the click-button or turning the handle makes the Counter shift by one place. When the count passes 9, the Geneva Drive catches the next register cylinder and adds it to the count. Altogether, the three-digit display of the Counter can register values from 1 to 999. You can open the front panel of the counter and reset it manually. Try counting steps on your way home. Or how many people you meet on a stroll through the park. How about, the number of blue cars passing by your house during one hour? Count stairs at home, at school, or at a friend’s house.

Pendulum

The Pendulum is a stylised educational model, an interactive study guide to the mechanism, only for learning its essentials and principles of working. The pendulum is one of the basic and most reliable time measuring mechanisms. Its working principle is based on the model's constant amplitude oscillation under the force of gravity (weight) and potential energy (tension force) of the rubber band. The rubber band powers the mechanism of the model and compensates for the pendulum's oscillations' kinetic energy loss. The device is animated by means of gear unit with a windup wheel.


Random Generator

For generations, humanity has been futilely wrestling with perennial questions, such as whose turn is it to take out the rubbish? Who will hoover today? And, of course, who does the dishes? Those who volunteer to do all these chores have our eternal respect, but what if no one volunteers? The fair way to handle this would be to let chance decide and throw a coin. If you have ever bet on heads or tails, this means you got close and personal with probability theory and its practical application.


  • The model kit comes with a QR-code to the study guide about the mechanism, the principal of its working, the main characteristics, formulas. It also includes interesting assignments.
