Have you ever wondered how industrial robots work? You know, the kind of robots that work on assembly lines building other complex pieces of machinery? Now you can unlock the mystery behind these sophisticated robots by building one of your own! Exclusively from HEXBUG® comes the VEX® Robotics Robotic Arm – a completely functional construction kit inspired by real industrial robot arms.
This construction kit challenges you to not only Build Genius™ but also build a fully functional VEX® Robotic Arm at the same time. With four points of motion, you can use each control knob to pick up surrounding objects with the claw!
The Robotic Arm™ can raise objects up to 14 inches by twisting the “left” hand knob forward and backward. It also extends out to 10 inches by twisting the “right” hand knob forward and backward. By turning the dial on the rear of the Arm will allow you to pick up many common household objects using the claw! The whole crane can rotate 360 degrees, allowing this miniature robot to perform the complex actions of its real-life counterpart.
HEXBUG® believes in using the fun of robotic toys to teach kids important STEM principles through hands-on learning. The VEX® Robotics Robotic Arm™ feature two alternate builds for more robotic fun! All Robotic Arm’s™ construction pieces are compatible with educational VEX® IQ pieces to create your own custom VEX® robot and explore unlimited possibilities. VEX Robotics Robotic Arm is compliant with CPSIA standards. Ages 8+
