Creepy but Cool Electronic Cockroach named Skitterbot
I can hardly imagine someone becoming fond of such a filthy creature as a cockroach, a creature that multiplies like crazy and dominates your house and pollutes it. I guess it is a good thing i didn’t imagine it because in REALITY, someone IS quite fond of them, so much so they made an electronic version called Skitterbot.
Basically, a slightly creepy and remote control robot that is being advertised as “the world’s fastest legged micro-robotic toy.” The electronic roach is available in four different colors, each representing the different level of frequency so you can either race, battle, or just torment your cat (or spouse for that matter) with them.
They are chargeable by USB port and are priced at $19.99. Scoffs... as IF someone would ay $20 bucks just to have one of the peskiest pest. SKitter’s function remote allows you to move it forward, back, left, right and to stop.
Hard to imagine? Here’s a dramatic and ominous video to help you graps the picture. Blech.
