Skitterbot – A Bug You Won’t Want to Squash

I had the opportunity to see the Skitterbot in action last February when I attended the International Toy Fair in NYC. The Skitterbot is a small bug shaped robot that is crazy fast. It can travel at one foot per second. You can control the Skitterbot with the 5 function remote that includes controls for forward, back, left, right, and stop. A retractable USB charger is built into remote and will provide 15 minutes of play
for a 30 minute charging session. Skitterbots come in Red, Blue, Clear, and Green. They are currently available at RadioShack and Toys R’ Us for $19.99. Watch them in action here.

  2. Ugh — anyone who has ever seen a waterbug in the house would never want one of these. Maybe they’re intended for little boys to scare the bejesus out of their sisters…
