Skitterbot Is A Creepy Electronic Cockroach

So the Skitterbot is a slightly creepy, mostly cool little remote control robot that’s being advertised as “the world’s fastest legged micro-robotic toy”. The Skitterbot is available in four different colors, each representing a different frequency so you can race, battle, or just torment your cat with them. I like the fact that they charge off of a USB port, and are quite reasonably priced at $19.99 each. The 5 function remote allows you to move the Skitterbot forward, back, left, right, and stop. Check out the overly dramatic yet slightly ominous video after the jump.
