Skitterbot Robotic USB Bug

Deskpets released the Skitterbot robotic toy today. It’s almost like a beetle or a fat bodied spider. They are calling this the “fastest legged robot commercially available” due to it’s travel rate of one foot per second. One of the cool features for the Skitterbot is the fact that it’s USB rechargeable, so no batteries needed (something any parent can appreciate). The other cool aspect is that in comes in 4 colors and each color is on it’s own frequency. So you can race them against each other or get multiple ones of the same color and control them all with a single remote. Create an army of Skitterbots. Here’s a video of these bots in action:

Amazon has them for about $27 each.
