Project Overview

Maneuverable, flexible, determined.

HEXA is a friendly six-legged robot inspired by nature to thrive in the real world.

Project Context

The friendly bot can also take pot plants for walks towards the sun and announces through a dance when it needs to be watered.

Project Innovation

The build is custom, with a unique dual-layer “flower pot" replacing Hexa's plastic shell. The modded robot can move itself into sunlight, spin to get itself properly situated in the sun, move itself out of the sun, signal when it needs to be watered, and dance "when it's happy"

HEXA’s optical and spatial sensors allow it to watch and learn from the world around it. And allow you to create interesting and intelligent functionality. Sensors include a 720p camera with night vision; 3-axis accelerometer; distance measuring sensor; infrared transmitter and more.

Mischievous, determined and quirky, HEXA has a real ‘can do’ attitude and can’t wait to get going.
