Innovation First, Inc. debuts a new line-up of toy robots including the VEX RCR Mini and the HEXBUG Micro Robotic Creature.
The VEX Robotics Design System ($299.99) is an open-ended robotics platform that includes more than 500 parts and accessories to design radio-controlled and programmable robots that expands the boundaries of experimental intelligence.
The HEXBUG Micro Robotic Creature is obedient, intelligent and looks and moves around just like the real creepy crawler it resembles. First introduced in 2007 in five different colors and body shapes for $9.99, the HEXBUG will get an update in 2008 with the addition of the HEXBUG Inchworm and HEXBUG Crab.
The HEXBUG Inchworm ($14.99) is the first micro creature with complete 7-way steering. The user can direct its looping type body movements forward, backward, left and right with an Infrared (IR) controller. Available in August 2008.
The HEXBUG Crab ($12.99) looks and functions like a tiny crab from the ocean floor, walking sideways and stopping to hide in the dark thanks to its on-board light sensor. The Crab's movement can be controlled through its sound sensor by clapping to scare it from its dark hiding place or send it backtracking in a different direction in the light. Available in August 2008.
