Hello And Welcome To Hexbug Olympics 2012.
I am still a bit new to this blogging stuff and just making it up as I go along. Santa brought my son a set of Hex Bugs for Christmas and since then they just won't stop breeding.
We have nine at the moment, pictured below
Now these guys (and Gals, mind its hard to tell the difference) are simply mad on the Olympics.
They have organised 2 events so far. The 100 meters sprint and Sumo Wrestling. Now, we all know that Sumo Wresting isn't a real Olympic event, but its makes for a fun video Click here
100 Meter Spint Starts Here.
Anyways, Videos links are below (If I get this next part right)
This is Heat One of the London 2012 Olympic100 meters sprint
And Heat Two of the London 2012 Olympic100 meters sprint
And Finally the Final of the London 2012 Olympic100 meters sprint
Now, we have a few months until the big opening ceremony, so we are intending to hold quite a few more events up until that time.
We have lots of ideas for lots of videos, which will appear right here.
Complete and ready to watch
AND WATCH THIS SPACE FOR AWESOME NIGHT TIME EVENTS.
Hexbugs with LIGHTS. Below is just a test video to see if the concept works. AND IT DOES!!!!
We will be putting another video together shortly to show how easy this modification is.
No soldering. No wiring and it only cost us 20 pence per bug.
