Remote Controlled Robot Caterpillars Will Crawl Into Your Heart


Raji Konchu RC Caterpillars from Japan's JTT Online Shop will crawl their way into your heart... not literally, because that would be weird (not to mention painful). These oversized robotic beasties will never turn into Mothra either but at least you won't have to pick up after them.

 

 

Measuring 4.5 x 1.2 x 0.8 inches and weighing just under an ounce, the larval trio come in three different naturalistic colors (one has weird, beady little eyes) and are designed to scrunch along most any surface with an unsettling inchworm-like motion. Check out this video to see them in action!

 

 

The controller can direct up to three caterpillar critters at once, though the only commands are Forward and Right. There's also an autonomous mode that lets the robo-slugs march to the beat of their own inner drummer... as creepy as that may sound. Looking for a pet that won't wet or a pal who'll never hit you up for money or smokes? Fork over $35 for a Raji Konchu RC Caterpillar and let the good times crawl.
