Your very own Hexbug robot
The Hexbug VEX Robotics Strandbeast features eight legs which can be remotely powered using a system of gears, motors and sensors, making the VEX Robotics Strandbeast extremely nimble. Control your robot remotely by moving quickly forwards or scuttling backwards, you can even change direction by spinning the robot on the spot. When you get tired of controlling your Strand beast you can switch the robot over to operate autonomously! Program the brain of the VEX Robotics Strandbeast using a series of switches and with 64 programming variations, you can experiment with how your robot moves.

Build from scratch
The Hexbug VEX Robotics Strandbeast comes completely disassembled, giving you the task of creating your very own remote control robot. Each of the 400+ pieces use a tool-less locking system to hold your creation together, so no screwdrivers or glue are needed to build your hulking VEX Strandbeast. The only addition needed to complete your RC robot is power as batteries are sold separately.

Learning can be fun!
Taught in schools across the country, the Hexbug VEX Strandbeast has been designed using principles based around science, technology, engineering and mathematics to let you have hands on experience building using methods in use in everyday machines. Construct each piece of your Strandbeast using simple step by step illustrated instructions and learn how every sensor, gear and piece interacts, while having fun.
