HEXBUG Micro Robotic Creatures
Hexbugs are robotic toys that were conceived to instill a positive image of robotics from a young age. Hexbugs are based on BEAM robotics (Biology, Electronics, Aesthetics, and Mechanics) so they simulate biological behaviors. These little critters are fascinating and react to light, sound and touch! They are fun and provide and introduction to robotics that will get kids asking questions and inspire a love of science. The original hexbugs were based on simple arthropods. Now the designs have expanded to include crabs, inchworms, nano, ant and more. Also check out the hexbug habitats!
