Wow it works | Balanced Robot

balanced robot

The wow it works balanced robot is actually a continuation of “balance and motion” . In the case of balance and motion,  we did not manage to perform the balancing act on a pulley , because we had  problems sourcing  for a small pulley . This time we managed to locate a reasonable small pulley , and therefore we try to complete what we did not achieve the last time . So here it is


Balanced robot | using a clothespin

Before we do the balanced robot , we tried using a clothespin because it is very simple to balance it on a thin thread . We can always decorate the clothespin with a head and  arms , since we already have the 2 legs resting and balancing on a thread

Here is a balanced robot using a toilet paper roll on a pulley . Unlike the clothespin , note that we only make use of 1 balancer for this robot  .

Here is our R2D2 balanced robot from wow it works . Not quite like R2D2 yet but soon . Noticed how the thread is balanced on the pulley .

Here is the video with the balanced robot sliding down a thin thread . Next time we will make the robot slide down a hard wire which we can bend left and right , up and down .  So maybe next time we will get to see

  Wow it works | Simple balanced robot

In a  nutshell , it is very simple to achieve balance . As long as the center of gravity or mass is below the pivot point or fulcrum , the object should easily maintain its balance . So here it is , balanced robot from wow it works


Wow it works | Gravity robot enhancement

This is the third enhancement to the Gravity robot by Wow it Works . The outcome of the Rochester event identify certain areas of improvement for the gravity robot

Gravity robot | New suit and shoes

Other than giving a “face” to the robot , this time we added a suit and shoes . Well its more colourful now but kids will have more work to do if they wanted to decorate their gravity robots as well . The “face” and “suit” provides better balancing to the overall gravity robot

balance and motion

In the “wow it works”  balance and motion activities , at the end , we need to apply newly acquired knowledge as to how we can balance a pencil on a finger  . Possible ? Let’s try .
