Prepare yourself for an army of robot cockroaches to storm across children’s bedrooms everywhere – courtesy of Bandai! The Bandai HexBug toy robot cockroach is designed to move as realistically as possible, and while there is also a ladybug version, it too moves like a cockroach – cockroaches are simply the easiest thing to model. It has six legs, a touch sensor for when it bumps into walls, and a microphone monitor so it knows to scuttle off when it ‘hears’ a loud noise. Available next month for about £10. [Camille]
