The Strand Beast is the latest creation to come out of the Hexbug development laboratories and it brilliantly fuses a crab, a spider and a robot to create something awesome. The complex walking mechanism makes good use of its 8 legs and really comes alive as it moves. In fact it gives the illusion of being more organic than robotic!
The Hexbug Strand Beast comes with an infrared remote control that allows you to independently operate each side of the Strand Beast's legs, giving you full control of forward, backward and turning motions. As it is set on two channels, you have the option of playing with two different Strand Beasts at once. Each Hexbug Strand Beast comes in translucent colours allowing you to see directly into the heart of this mechanical beauty. This ‘guts out’ approach is designed to get kids and adults alike thinking about the science used to create this robot.
