Insectbot Hexa Arduino DFRobot

An Arduino Based Walking Robot Kit For Kids

The insectbot DFRobot is an affordable, fun and easy to create robot that will allow children to become familiar with electronics and robotics. This Hexa walking robot dedicated to children and based on Arduino also aims to familiarize the youngest with the basic principles of the platform. DFRobot's Hexa insect robot is of second generation and therefore more powerful than the previous one.

Insectbot Hexa Arduino by DFRobot

DFRobot has completely rethought the code of the robot Insectbot Hexa to make it more intelligent in its movements and in its ability to avoid obstacles. The codes are not more difficult to read and it is still possible to program the Insectbot Hexa with the simplified Ardublock language. A graphical programming language that will allow you to fine-tune the Hexa robot. 

The new Insectbot Hexa V2 uses Beetle BLE (the smallest Arduino bluetooth 4.0) instead of Beetle, which supports programming and wireless communication. Explore many more possibilities with Bluetooth 4.0!

Features Beetle BLE

  • ATmega328@16MHz
  • Bluetooth Low Energy (BT 4.0)
  • Micro USB port
  • Super Compact Size
  • Support Bluetooth HID and ibeacon
  • Compatible with all DFRobot Bluno Series
  • Support Wireless Programming
