Introduction

With a celebrated reputation as an affordable, simple and fun-to-play DIY robot, the Insectbot breed has now evoled to its second generation: the Insectbot Hexa. 


Bigger than Bigger
The six-legged Insectbot Hexa is undoubtedly in a bigger body build than its ancestors: 15% larger in size and 20% heavier in weight. This, as a result, made Hexa the most powerful generation in Insectbot history: with three high quality 9g micro servos and four AAA batteries, Hexa walks steadfast no matter where it is.

Smarter than Ever
We've redesigned its code to make this robot smarter in motion, and has an improved capability in obstacle avoidance. However, it doesn't mean the codes are more difficult to read - you can still program your Insectbot with graphical language Ardublock, and spend some time tweaking it from head to toe. Improvisations and hackings are warmly welcomed - we'd love to see more diversified Insectbots!

A Brave Heart
The heart of Insectbot is "world's smallest Leonardo", a.k.a. Beetle. Deriving its core notion from minimalism without compromising functionality, Beetle comes with Atmel AtMega32u4 (datasheet) @16MHz clock time and has expanded amounts of interfaces: 10 digital pins, 5 analog pins and 4 pwn pins. To further make it user-friendly, it is compatible with Micro USB so that direct programming and testing is no longer a headache. Select "Arduino Leonardo (tools >board > Arduino Leonardo in Arduino IDE), the ATmega32U4 comes preburned with a bootloader that allows you to upload any new code that is applicable to Arduino Leonardo.
