HEXBUG Featured on TMC Info Tech Spotlight

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

HEXBUG was recently featured in an article on TMC’s Info Tech Spotlight.

I was enjoying a busy day of holiday shopping at the local mall when I walked by an intriguing display full of robotic bugs. Since I am something of a techie and also the office expert on Robobees, I decided to do a closer inspection.

The robotic bugs, called HEXBUGS, are marketed as “Micro Robotic Creatures,” and are sold by Innovation First Labs, Inc.. And I am not the only one who finds HEXBUGS kind of cool – the product earned slot number seven on Dr Toy’s Ten Best Children’s Products of 2010 list.

The battery-powered HEXBUGS come in a variety of different options, including an inchworm, crab, ant, nano and original models. They are equipped with sensors that allow them to react to light, sound and of course… one and other.

HEXBUGs Are Super Cool For Easter Baskets!

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Robyn’s Online World blog featured the entire HEXBUG line as great alternative Easter gifts:

I would even have to agree with Taylor on this one and go for the super cool Hexbug! It might be small, but it is mighty in it’s fun. Don’t think they are just for the kids either, adults (like me) love these little robotic creatures just as much as the younger ones. While the bunny is super cute, what am I really going to do with it? Plus the Hexbug is a fantastic alternative to candy – do we really need to buy our kids all that chocolate and sugar? The Hexbug I can keep out and play with 365 days a year!

Nano & Ant: Creepy crawlers of the future

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

Engadget visited our booth at the New York Toy Fair and wrote up a quick review along with a bunch of photos.

Okay, so it isn’t as artsy as making gooey bugs in a miniature oven, but HexBug’s little micro-robotic tchotchkes are a good time in their own right. The digital entomologists at HexBugs decided to unleash the new Ant Micro and Nano Newton at New York City’s Toy Fair, and for some peculiar reason we were quite enamored with watching these autonomous, high speed creatures run around the carpeted show floor.
