Buy Your Very Own Robot Army

These are cool:

HEXBUG feels its way around sensing objects in its path and avoiding them. And they can hear! You control where they scurry through a hand clap, loud noise or table slap. They come in five distinct shapes and colors. The trick is for you to catch them all.

Each costs $4.50, and you can pick up a case for $150 (they are being used by schools for fund raising).

Who wants to split a case and take over the world?

    These seem completely useless. Please stop posting garbage on this website.

    Well, if you stop by outside the Ladha centre today, there is a demonstration by phys/engineering with a robotic-spider machine. It’s really cool, it moves exactly like a spider does and there’s a seat where the person riding it controls it.

    Hey there Mo D,

    I too, just got back from my visit with Mondo Spider. I agree, it was really cool. Check out my latest post for links to more information.

    I would like you to know that the individual using my illustrious name above is an impostor.

    I, the true Bertrand Von Pinkelstink will only ever comment on the improper use of the English language.

    It is clear that the individual who has adopted my name as a cowardly shield suffers not only from jealousy and insecurity, but he or she suffers from an inability to recognize how cool those little bug robots are.

    Your friend and mine,
