LEGO Technic Non-Electric Models: Cars and Mechanisms
Authors: Isogawa, Yoshihito
Publisher: No Starch Press
Synopsis: Part of the fourth installation in the best-selling LEGO® Technic Idea Book series by master builder and LEGO luminary Yoshihito Isogawa, this book helps you build creative, non-electric cars and mechanisms.
Get inspired by the fun, creative projects found in LEGO Technic Non-Electric Models: Cars and Mechanisms. Each project uses color-coded pieces and is illustrated with photographs taken from multiple angles, making it easy to see how the models are assembled.
The Technic models in Non-Electric Models don't require motors or sensors, making it easy for the novice Technic builder to get started. You'll build models that use cranks, cams, rubber bands, and flywheels, and create contraptions that lift, grab, and shoot things. Every model illustrates a principle, concept, or mechanism designed to inspire your own original creations. You'll learn the basics of mechanical engineering and understand the joy of making things that work.
Cars and Mechanisms introduces a number of basic mechanisms that harness the power of gears and rotation, and applies them to an exciting variety of model cars.
This visual guide is the brainchild of master builder Yoshihito Isogawa and is designed to fire the imaginations of LEGO builders young and old.
Imagine. Create. Invent. Now, what will you build?
