iPhone-Controlled Insects

By: on November 23, 2014

Unfortunately, these iPhone-controlled insects cannot fly or crawl up my friend Cornelius' leg and make him die while he's engaged in Advanced Warfare. On screen, obviously. Off screen he would just squeal like the lovechild of a chimp and a pig. But iHelicopter's RC critters are still pretty creepy and fun to skitter around for some jollies with friends, pets, and mamas.

Available in Beetle and Bug styles, these electronic insects exhibit movements and characteristics eerily similar to their biological counterparts. A USB rechargeable battery keeps their legs crawling, and an iPhone, iPad, or iPod links to their IR receiver to direct them forward, back, right, and left with a free controller app. Enjoy creeping your crawlies at a distance of up to 20'.
