Skitterbot R/C Bug Robots Are Very Cool and Very Fast

by Shane McGlaun

I’m a sucker for remote control toys and robots. My office desk and the toy room upstairs are littered with the remnants of all manner of R/C toys from cars to robots and flying whatnots. A cool new R/C bug robot has been announced called Skitterbot.

The Skitterbot looks a lot like beetle to me with six legs and a five-function remote control. That remote control will let the bug move forward, back, left, and right however the driver wants. The Skitterbot is crazy fast for a small R/C toy. It can scuttle along at a foot per second.

The bug itself charges from a USB connector that appears to be integrated with the remote control, which is common for this type of small RC toy. A 30-minute charge will give you 15-minutes of playtime. That practically guarantees that my kids will crash them into the walls and each other.

Skitterbots are available over on Amazon for $26.99 (USD) each.
