Product Description

RoboRails The Robot Monorail System

Explore the future of transportation with RoboRails! This compact robot balances on a single wheel and glides along a monorail track thanks to its fast-moving internal gyroscope and monowheel. A clever design uses ball bearings as the weights of the gimbal, which is nearly frictionless as it spins. You’ll be amazed at how steady this robot is on the track!

The full-color, 32-page manual guides you through a step-by-step assembly of the robot

and dozens of track layouts from over 180 durable, plastic parts. Choose any of the 26 configurations in the manual or use your imagination to invent your own! Combine the snap-together track segments with the three special connectors – the seesaw, the splitter, and the cross switch – to add twists, turns, and obstacles to your routes.

A series of hands-on experiments demonstrate important physics topics such as rotational motion, acceleration, and angular momentum, bringing the science of gyroscopic forces to life right before your eyes! Bonus: learn how these principles are an integral part of the development of monorails and green transportation.

I love shopping here

I love shopping here for unique and interesting birthday presents. They offer free wrapping for gifts and the associate that helped me did a fantastic job of wrapping odd shaped items. She really took pride in the work she was doing.

Great for teachers

Great selection of educational toys, tools and books for kids. Great for teachers and parents alike. Staff are knowledgeable and compassionate. It could use a paintjob, it felt a bit like a warehouse with the bare walls and minimal colour.
