As first reported by Gizmodo, the well-known toy brand Lego has released an exciting new kit imitating NASA’s Mars Rover Perseverance that gives space aficionados a fun way to learn about the design and capabilities of the Rover and its ally, the Ingenuity helicopter.
With the Perseverance model, Lego has adopted a new strategy from their prior Space Shuttle Discovery set.
The new Perseverance kit makes use of Lego Technic components, in contrast to the earlier model, which concentrated on accurately replicating the aerodynamic design of the space shuttle using regular Lego bricks.]
As a result, the model can accurately represent parts of the rover’s capabilities, with the help of visible gears and other technological components.
Lego’s Mars Rover Perseverance is a smaller Technic model with 1,132 pieces than the genuine Mars Rover Perseverance, which took NASA engineers four years to build.
Once built, this remarkable Lego set exhibits a number of noteworthy qualities. It has a useful arm that can be used to collect samples, a remarkable adjustable “360° steering” mechanism, and articulated suspension on all six wheels, which enable it to easily move on a variety of terrain.
A realistic reproduction of the Ingenuity Helicopter is also included in the kit, despite the fact that it cannot fly by itself.
To make the Lego Mars Rover Perseverance come to life, imagination is a must. Users can experience the model coming to life on their smartphone or tablet screens through augmented reality by scanning the set with the Technic AR mobile app.
The app contains fascinating extra details about the actual Mars Rover Perseverance and its trip to the Red Planet. It also offers insights into the local weather there right now.
