Think all wheels are round? Think again! Introducing the new kinetic art masterpiece from HEXBUG® - the VEX® Robotics Hexcalator! This sophisticated machine was inspired by the cutting edge medical devices and uses a hand crank to power 3 hexagonal indexing wheels to transport balls uphill where they are released onto the return ramp.
Once constructed, this machine will move the balls in a continuous loop at a rate of 1 ball per second (8 balls included). HEXBUG® is dedicated to inspiring future generations of robotics engineers through the excitement of hands-on learning with fun STEM-based construction kits, like the VEX® Robotics Hexcalator Ball Machine. This machine teaches important scientific principals such as kinematics, linkages and reciprocal motion.
Collect and connect all of the VEX® Robotics Ball Machines, or give your VEX® Robotics Ball Machine a powerful boost with the VEX® Robotics Motor Kit (sold separately).
The VEX® Robotics Hexcalator Ball Machine is compliant with CPSIA standards. Batteries not required.
