Bandai Hex Bug Robotic Crab is Just like Real Thing, With Less Pinching

Illustration for article titled Bandai Hex Bug Robotic Crab is Just like Real Thing, With Less Pinching

Digging around in beach rock pools for crabs was always fun when I was a kid, though it brought the risk of a nip to your fingers if you weren't careful: not a problem from these robotic crabs. Latest in the Hex Bug line from Bandai, the toys are designed to look, move and behave a little like the real deal. When you turn them on, they scamper sideways, changing direction if you make a noise and then coming to a stop when they find a shadowy spot to hide in. Quite neat really, and the 2.5-inch toy 'bots will cost just $25 when they're out in August. Check out the video to see them in action.

Make it about 5 times faster, so it is more like a real crab, and make it RC and I would buy one tomorrow.
