Robot crab

For the crab lover – robot crabs.  Thinking about these little demons crawling around my floor kind of freaks me out.

These Hex Bug crabs will come in red and blue colors, retailing for $25 a pop when August 9 rolls around in Japan. According to Bandai, these robots behave just like the real thing, capable of scurrying away to a dark area to hide courtesy of its integrated light sensor. In addition, they also respond accordingly to sound through an integrated sound sensor. Woe to you should an inquisitive kid by the beach pick this up and decide to keep it for his/her collection. If only they had a version with real menacing pincers which actually pinch – now that’d be something.
