An exciting exploration into the world of electronics, robotics and construction, the Hexbug Vex Robotics Spider Construction Kit teaches children the fascinating foundations of electronics, remote control and wireless communication. With over 350 components, it's challenging and hugely rewarding to piece together.
As well as the expertly-designed interlocking plastic components, the Vex Robotics Spider kit features five electronic components which help power the robot's powerful actions. Gears help transfer power to the Spider's moving limbs, the motors carry motion throughout the 'skeleton' and the brain receives and interprets your commands to control the Spider.
The awesomeÂ coloursÂ and spectacular design of the robot's skeleton are perfect to show off your impressive and intricate construction work, while the translucent materials show off the ingenious components inside.
Once the construction is finished, the fun only continues! Use the wireless remote control to determine the Spider's speed, direction and movements: the head rotates and the legs move the Spider around.
And the Spider has more hi-tech tricks up its sleeve. The in-built distance sensor judges the Spider's surroundings, helping it to avoid walls and objects. LED light modules in the head change colour with every turn of the spider's head for an even more entertaining robotic experience.
