If you have a fear of spiders, insects or anything with more than 2-4 legs, the Hexa Robot is not for you. But everyone else should take a look.
Hexa is a friendly, programmable, six-legged robot that’s also agile, intelligent and compact enough to fit in your backpack. The highly-manoeuvrable bot comes complete with all the necessary sensors, arms and legs required to nimbly interact with a multitude of environments and terrains.
We’ve all dreamt of a world where robots interact with and help us lowly humans in our daily lives. Unfortunately, robots being too expensive and complex have kept the masses at bay. Thanks to Hexa’s MIND (its operating system), the bot is simple enough that you don’t need to know underlying hardware and complex mechanics to learn and create impressive robotics functionality. For anyone with a solid understanding of the tech, the possibilities are endless.
Hexa’s MIND is a complete robotics ecosystem, including a user-generated Skills Store, where you can share your latest Skills or play around, testing out the Skills of your fellow robot-enthusiasts and Hexa owners.
Hexa’s optical and spatial sensors allow it to watch and learn from the world around it, and allow you to create interesting and intelligent functionality. Sensors include a 720P camera with night vision, 3-axis accelerometer, distance measuring sensor and an infrared transmitter. You can communicate with Hexa via a PC or smartphone over Wi-Fi.
Hexa is complete and ready to go. The developer’s Vincross are seeking funding through Kickstarter to ramp up production and have robots shipped around the globe by October 2017. Early bird backers can secure a Hexa Robot for US $499. For the first time, people have the ability to create, explore and invent with robotics. This is your stepping stone into the fast growing field of robotics.
