If you read the site regularly, you know that we here at Technabob love weird Japanese gadgets. Something you probably don’t already have lying around your office – a remote-controlled cockroach that you can drive with your iPhone.

This creepy, crawly critter connects via an infrared wireless dongle you plug into the dock connector on your iOS device (sorry iPhone 5 users, you’ll need to wait for your lightning to 30-pin adapter to show up).

Then, using a companion app, you can steer the bugs with your phone or tablet.┬áThe bug itself can be recharged by plugging it into your computer’s USB port. But enough of my yakkin’. Let’s see this bad boy in action…

You can pick up this iOS controlled cockroach over at Re!Ex!!Japan!!! for $44(USD).
