Rock Tumbler

Have you ever picked up a shiny, smooth pebble at the beach or along a riverbank?  Mother Nature polished that stone by gently washing it in water and sand or gravel until all the rough edges were smoothed away. Then the inner colors and unique composition of the stone were uncovered! You can do the same thing in your Rock Tumbler; it is faster than nature, but still takes time and patience. You can expect to have beautiful, polished stones in 2 to 4 weeks.

Geckobot, by Thames and Kosmos

This astonishing wall-climbing robot has a motorized air suction system that enables it to walk vertically up and down perfectly smooth surfaces, like glass, plastic, whiteboards, and glossy laminates. The battery-powered motor drives an innovative gear system that produces a rotating motion making the legs move back and forth and up and down, mimicking a real gecko.
