R/C Black Widow Spider Definitely Not for Arachnophobes
November 29th, 2008
Wanna scare the living crap out of your roommate? Just put this giant furry black widow spider on top of their blanket while they’re asleep, flip on the remote control, and watch the mayhem ensue.
This massive R/C black widow spider is designed to be an “educational toy”, but if I had one of these in class when I was a kid, it would have ended me up in the principal’s office for sure.
Created by London’s Natural History Museum, the larger-than-life (appx 12″ long by 10″ wide) mechanical arachnid can creep forward, backwards, left, right, or even spin itself around on a dime. The remote control works from up to 30 feet away, letting you stalk your unwitting victims from around a corner or hiding in their closet.
Ready to unleash havoc? Head on over to UK gadget retailer Play.com and plunk down your £17.99 (appx. $28 USD). Venom not included.
