Set atop six independent legs, the Hexa Robot is designed as an entryway into robotics. Via software, you can access the robot's 720p, night vision-capable camera, its infrared transmitter, its distance measuring sensor, and its accelerometer. You can also control its crab-like legs, each of which has three motors inside, or move its endlessly rotating head. It's powered by a dual-core ARM processor and has USB, audio, 12C, ADC, and GPIO interfaces, as well as Wi-Fi and a battery that lasts up to three hours. Use cases are myriad, but Hexa inventor Sun Tianqi has come up with an early example: adapting the case to hold a plant, then using the robot to move it into the sunlight when needed and dance when it needs water.
