The Hexbug Nano is delightfully cute and a lot of fun to play around with. And, they are cheap enough that we can afford to buy several and won’t shed a tear if we happen to accidentally break one while hacking it. Still, it would be even better, and even more fun, to play with in the dark, if only it had a light….
That’s exactly what the folks over at I Heart Robotics thought. So they came up with a nifty hack to add an additional battery and LED to the Nano. Check out the video showing the results of their hard labor, and creativity below.
