The HEXBUG Nano micro robotic creature behaves like a real bug, skittering across the floor, flipping over on its back and then righting itself. It can even find its way out of mazes and other obstacles. Created in an extensive development process, the Nano features a distinctive closed nose shape, a low center of gravity and an unusual internal and external chassis design.

Features


How it works


A counterweight inside the Nano forces the creature up and down, causing the legs to bend and the Nano to move forward. The upward force causes the creature to lift its legs off the ground and unbend, propelling the Nano forward.


Swarm


When Nano creatures come together they swarm like real insects. They might seem chaotic at first, but some observers see intelligence, cooperation and competition amongst the Nanos.


Look inside


The Nano's distinctive design features a closed nose shape and a transparent panel that displays the specimen’s inner workings.


Enhanced play


Register and track your HEXBUG Nano online, play games and learn about real science.


Habitats and more


Whether you have 2 or 200 specimens, the HEXBUG Nano Habitat Set and other accessories (sold separately) allow you to create custom obstacles and dwellings for your Nano creatures.


Collect them all!


Explore the Orbit, Gravity, Motion, Calculus and Refraction series for other unique Nanos in an exotic array of colors, markings and distinctive body shapes.

The coolest toy ever!! I have 2 of the Nano, and a starter set. I love how they can flip over by themselves. The best thing about them is the they are so fun! I keep coming back to play with them.Make sure you have a habitat, or else they will run under the couch! I think that the blue/green one looks the best. I also have a grey one. The only bad thing is that the batteries run out over a few days, and they don't have enough power anymore to flip over if they fall on their back.

LOVE these litte bugs. Excellent stocking stuffer for our four and three year old boys. And entertaining to see how they creeped out the adults with their very real behavior. They even buzz around on their backs if flipped until they can flip themselves back over like a real bug. Very disapponted in how the colors are represented on this website. Would have rated 4 stars had the colors even been close to how they were represented. They look nothing like what I received. The green was completely black with a litte neon green underneath the bug, the purple was all baby pink with a little lavender underneath and the blue was a turquoise shell with orange underneath. Couldn't use the "purple" (pink) for the teen's stocking I had intended to use it for.

      Comments about Innovation First Inc HEXBUG® Nano - Blue:

      The nanobugs were a group Christmas gift for my four children. They range in age from 2 to 9 years old. I also bought a hexbug habitat to use with the bugs, and all the children really enjoyed checking out the bugs and letting them run around the habitat pathways. They only thing that is a problem is that since the bugs are so small, they are easy to lose, and some children don't remember where they put them. However, we have managed to find them all after a while.

      It's a cute little toy. I bought this gadget as a stocking stuffer for my husband. He's in his 30's and thought it was cute. Yes, mostly it entertains our 5-year-old daughter but it was fun to purchase and give too. We do not use it all the time so the battery has not run down yet, although I've read it goes through them quickly.

      Comments about Innovation First Inc HEXBUG® Nano - Blue:

      What a funny little thing, so entertaining. Bought for a teen stocking stuffer. Doesn't work on carpeting or a surface that's too smooth like paper, needs some traction, we played with it on wood floor. Ran all over the room and looked like a real little bug, my two year old was slightly scared of it, but also found it hilarious. Beware it will crawl all over, it ran right up into our vaccum hose and I had to shake it out, lol. Great purchase, will be getting more. Like a step up from the old wind up toys. Very small so I wouldn't give to an under three or child who has any possiblity of sticking it in their mouth. Has an on/off switch, wish it lit up for nighttime use and easier finding when it runs off !
