The company aims to make robotics approachable so children can form a lifelong appreciation of tech.
New from Hexbug for 2020 are Mobots, interactive robotic sidekicks. Kids can talk to their Mobot to record their voice, which the robot will play back and even modify with special effects. The Mobots can speed up or slow down playback to change the pitch to high or low, meaning kids can use the effects to make themselves sound like a booming giant, a robot and more.
There are three versions of Mobots to choose from, with SRPs ranging from £8.99 to £24.99. All come with voice recording and playback technology, plus other special features. Mimix is posable, while Ramblez can scoot around and communicate with beeps and boops to other Ramblez robots nearby. When kids clap their hands, he will enter dance mode and drive around in fun patterns. Rounding out the range is Fetch, a remote controlled Mobot capable of grabbing and lifting objects.
