BECAUSE EVERYONE LOVES TRAINS:

A Wooden Train Set Like No Other : So perfectly designed you don't even need glue to put it together. (Robby Berman, 12/05/15, Slate)


The video above comes from a Kickstarter campaign that's already exceeded its funding goal more than six times over. It's easy to see why. The intricately detailed working models UGEARS is producing are just amazing, and they look like a tremendous amount of fun to build and, well, play with.

The star attraction of the video is a picture-perfect locomotive capable of riding five meters of rail. What makes this and other UGEARS products so cool is that there's no metal whatsoever involved. Each model is primarily wood, with an engine powered by rubber bands.
