Meet Six, the hexapod from EZ-Robot. Six can balance on three legs and walk with four, which leaves the other legs free to push buttons, manipulate objects, or reach out for new footing. An camera in the head of the bot can identify QR codes, and track colors, motion, and faces.

Six is made from parts that can clip together in a variety of ways, making the robot easy to customize. But in the standard configuration, Six has six legs and twelve degrees of freedom.

Like all EZ-Robots, Six is can be easily animated. Simply move the robot into the positions of your choice to program the animation. The robot can also be controlled using apps that are available for Android and iOS, or by creating your own app using EZ-Builder Robot Software.

Six can be purchased online from EZ-Robot for $399.99.
