"Hexbug is a six-legged toy robot inspired by BEAM technology. Hexbug has a few simple behaviors. Once switched on, Hexbug will move forward with a classic alternating tripod gait. If an obstruction touches either of the antennae, or if it detects a loud sound it will back up to the left and then continue forward. The name Hexbug however has more to do with the shape of the packaging it is sold in than the number of legs it has. Hexbug was created by Innovation First, Inc. and is distributed by Bandai in Japan." quote from wikipedia
They have also released various other Hexbugs, which some is remotely controlled

My son loves these things. We have a bunch of the Habitat connection systems and several of the Nano size bugs, Ants, and a handful of "original" models.

He'll be getting more for christmas as well.

They're quirky and more of a robotic novelty (hell, Klutz even put a book/kit out showing you how to make your own at home) than anything else, but if the kid is happy, so am I.

The Target and TRU stores locally have tons of them. They each also have their own exclusive sets for the nanos.

PM me if you are serious about getting a few of them.
