HEXBUG Crab Review

Monday, August 25th, 2008

A review of the new HEXBUG Crab:

The crab robot, like its counterparts, can roam around a room and react with whatever it encounters. There is no need to control it or do anything. It has sensors on its feet that help it navigate around obstacles. The small robot also has sensors that detect light and sound. When it hears a loud clapping or banging sound it will run away, just like a real crab. The same goes for when bright lights are shined towards it. The visual and audio sensors make the crab Hexbug the most complex of the current series.
