Using the new gravity-defying HEXBUG Nano V2 tube-crawling robotic creatures as inspiration, Innovation First International has just launched a Vine and Instagram #theycanclimb video contest.
The goal of the contest is for individuals to create a short, fun video that captures something that’s inspired by climbing, and incorporate HEXBUGs into the posted video whenever possible. You can see some of our very own #theycanclimb videos here and here, or directly on their Instagram & Vine channels.
Every entrant will receive a $5 promo code off their next purchase on http://www.hexbug.com. To receive your $5 promotional code, simply post your videos to Twitter or Facebook, with the hashtag #theycanclimb, and IFI will direct message you with the code. IFI will also be picking a weekly winning #theycanclimb post every Friday that feature on our site http://www.nanov2.com and shared through our social media channels. In addition to the $5 promo prize, weekly winners will be selected and receive a Nano V2 Black Hole set (equivalent to a $50 retail value). One To the Motherhood will also be receiving a set of their own by entering the contest via the Rafflecopter form below.
The HEXBUG Aquabot is the first water-born HEXBUG micro robotic creature with smart fish technology! Powered by electro-magnetic propulsion, this swimming fish propels itself forward to explore its environment. The colorful HEXBUG Aquabot offers kids the fun experience of having a pet fish, without all the messy clean-up. Available in five translucent colors, the HEXBUG Aquabot is equipped with an automatic on and off sensor that activates when submerged in water, a design element meant to get kids thinking about the science behind the robot. When in water, the colorful HEXBUG Aquabot comes to life swimming around, diving and changing directions to explore its environment.
The HEXBUG Nano V2 is an all new breed of gravity defying HEXBUG Nanos! These Nano V2 bugs can now climb up vertically, horizontally, around corners, through loops and tubes, to the tip top of any Nano V2 habitat set. This product line features an evolved Nano, sporting a new look, with three rubber spines on its back, as well as a new system of tubular tracks that highlight the Nano V2’s unique multi-level climbing abilities. The HEXBUG Nano V2 is a tiny, micro robotic creature that uses the physics of vibration to scurry up through multiple levels of tubes, as high as the V2 set will take it, to explore its environment. The quick little critter possesses an uncanny sense of balance, capable of crawling through tubes on its feet or on its back, and can pass another bug in a single tube to avoid a traffic jam! The Nano V2 will even flip to its feet when landing on its back on an open flat surface.
