Hexbug RC Car

This RC car was made by using a hex bug, some hot glue, and LEGO pieces.

About

While this car was limited in its capabilities, mainly it could only go forward and backwards, it is the earliest maker project I have record of. It was later rebuilt at my grandmother’s house to use a propeller to move at a much faster rate on a matchbox car style body. Unfortunately, there is no record of this.

I have spent awhile trying to find the exact hex bug I used, and it doesn’t seem to exist. It had two legs, one on each side and could work its way around using a remote control.

The original caption was “How to build a remote-control car: rip apart a hex bug and legos here and there and tada!!!!!!! you have to figure out the rest”
