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.

          I bought 4 of these bugs plus the habitat for my 4 boys this year and they are by far the biggest hit of this Christmas. They even got a couple Zhu-Zhu's and the hamsters are just sitting off to the side unnoticed. The Hex Bug Nano's have been declared the best gifts by all the boys.
