UGears is a startup established in 2014 in Kyiv, Ukraine. Little over 5 years later, the collection has grown to almost 90 models of gorgeous, intelligent design. UGears has invented and patented their very own plywood joint design. The unique self-propelled mechanical model kits are designed for self-assembly without glue and made entirely of high-grade eco-friendly wooden material. The models are fun to assemble as well as educational, and can also serve as decorative pieces due to their aesthetically pleasing design. Inspired by steam-punk fantasy, the clear view of all the moving components, including gears and pendulums, creates a unique, unforgettable and fascinating look at everyday (and not so everyday) machinery.
