Hexy, Maker Shed, $250
When I did my Shed guide, we didn’t have Hexy the Hexapod in stock yet. Now we do. These guys had their booth right next to the Breadboarding Workshop I co-ran and I really like their product. It’s pretty exciting to see a six-legged walker of this level of sophistication be available at such an affordable price. There’s a reason why the creator of Hexy, Joseph Schlesinger, asked for $13,000 on Kickstarter and got $168,000 instead! If you have a more advanced robot hobbyist on your gift list, consider a Hexy.
