Get ready for another VEX STEM Starter by HEXBUG! The VEX Robotics Pick and Drop Ball Machine by HEXBUG is the perfect activity for the aspiring engineer. With 400+ pieces and a rank of “5” on the difficulty scale, this kit provides the perfect amount of intellectual stimulation to have the whole family putting on their thinking caps.
This machine focuses on the kinetic energy you generate by turning the crank near the base. In addition, a complex system of gears within the mechanism operates three sophisticated arms with claws that gently secure each ball, lifts, then send them rolling down the track. By attaching a motor kit, it is even possible to fully automate your creation to run all on its own! The fun doesn’t stop there; combined with other VEX Ball Machines, this gadget can form an interconnected system powered by physics, and your brain!
