This is the coolest Radio Controlled "toy" yet...
Yet I bet that if it ever goes mass-market that 50% of them will end up smashed to bits by terrified people!
Isn't that thing awesome!

I think I heard a comment that in a year or two they hope the price might get down to $500. Makes me wonder what this version costs! I don't expect to find one under my Christmas tree.

Swarm of the Tarantulas lol
The host of that show said it all, we sure are living in one of coolest times for tech.
Be real cool if they can someday get it beefed up enough that it could leap like those jumping spiders can do. Also how about adding a camera where the eye is and a video link with first person view. That would allow capture of the foot when an unsuspecting person stomps on it. LOL.
