Buildable and Programmable Robot That Guards, Tracks, and Attacks!Mecanno's MeccaSpider combines the fun of model building with the latest in robotics. Both entertaining and challenging, this STEM toy encourages development of skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The first step is to build the robotic spider, but it doesn't end there. Once constructed, kids can program the robot and interact with its unique personality thanks to a series of built-in, customizable modes and games.
Control the versatile programmable robot using its built-in buttons or an app and infrared remote control. MeccaSpider features an IR sensor that detects movement so it can engage, pursue and apprehend whatever target enters its path.
Track and AttackThe MeccaSpider uses an IR sensor to sense movement, track down, and attack its target. Once detected, the interactive robotic spider sprays a stream of venom (water) to capture and contain the enemy in its path.
Built-in Controls and Free AppInnovative and versatile in design, you can control this programmable robot with either its onboard controls or the free Meccano app. Simply download the app onto a mobile device to control MeccaSpider's creepy crawly movements, emit sounds and spray venom.
Guard Mode - Keep Intruders OutProtect your room from intruders with MeccaSpider's fun and frightening Guard modes. The interactive robot for kids acts as a bodyguard, patrolling the area and keeping unwelcome guests out using its IR sensor to detect movement and attack.
Interactive GamesRobotics for kids have never been more fun than when playing an interactive game of 'Venom Attack'. Gather in a circle with friends and sit very still. If the robotic spider senses movement, you may be the first to get sprayed and soaked with venom!

The Meccano Story De-constructedMeccano has a strong legacy of creating imaginative construction sets for children that goes all the way back to 1898 in England. In 1913, a similar construction toy company started out called Erector in the US. Meccano now owns Erector and is creating construction toys that inspire and educate through STEM learning and imaginative play that includes robotics for kids.
