Hexbugs – Robot Toys Mimic Animals
Singularity Hub has a collection of HEXBUG videos along with a review of the various HEXBUG products to add to our video posts today:
Hexbugs may be more cute than extraordinary. Their animal like behavior has been seen in other robots, and their movement and sensing systems are pretty average. Still, they represent a nice trend in robotic toys: innovation as fun. Students and hobbyists are encouraged by such products to see the growing potential in robotics. These little guys are mimicking animals now, they’ll likely mimic humans as they become more complex.
