We can print the pieces in a specific colour if you wish. Let us know through the order comments. Below are the available colours:
Lead times vary. Some colours we might already have pre-fabricated. Otherwise, it can be 3-6 day wait for the printer.
Create some flexible links using two hubs and a mould. From there, stick the links between vertebrae. Alternate the vertebrae sizes for an interesting effect. Attach some fishing line to the ends of a vertebrae and string it though. Push/pull to see the construction move!
You can see one of our flexible creations in action: Botbait!
This is a really good kit as a starting off point, since there are many pieces to experiment with.
Some other ideas would be to make a funny robotic flower with a flexible stem. Or even a robot with antennae!
