An exciting exploration into the world of electronics, robotics and construction, the Hexbug Vex Robotics Strandbeast 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 Strandbeast kit features five electronic elements which help power the robot's powerful actions. Gears help transfer power to the Strandbeast's moving limbs, the motors carry motion throughout the 'skeleton' and the brain captures and interprets your commands to control the Strandbeast.
The awesome colours 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 Strandbeast's speed, direction and movements: the head rotates and the legs move the Vex RoboticsÂ Strandbeast around.
And the Strandbeast has more hi-tech tricks up its sleeve. The inbuilt distance sensor judges the VexÂ Strandbeast's environment, helping it to evade walls and objects. LED light modules in its head change colour with every turn of the spider's head for an even more entertaining robotic experience.
