I am a big fan the original Hexbug™ Spider. I have owned over a dozen and hacked them all. Anytime one of my sons goes to a friends’ birthday party, the friend gets a Hexbug™ spider as a gift. I have hacked the original spider to play football (http://youtu.be/h0BTYm1e5u0
) and follow lines (http://youtu.be/quDHhuEsxEg
). When I saw the Hexbug™ Spider XL at Target™, I immediately wanted to hack a smartphone to it and experiment with computer vision and robotics.
