Hexbug Nanos Really Have Sensors?

Do they really? I saw the ad on youtube. I don’t believe it. I’m going to pick up a few to review on youtube (but that’s not the only reason!) so I want to get the facts straight.

Thanks :^)

No sensors. Just a coin cell, a slide switch, and a cell-phone-style vibratory motor. The magic is in the shape, material, and balance of the case. They really do seem to have a very organic “personality” to them.

We used several in a haunted house this year running around under a black light to look like glowing bugs. They worked great except that the batteries only went about 3 hours.

Oh wow, thanks! I just got some and I do see just a battery and a motor. I was wondering how they could act so differently!
