ChouChou: Amazing robot butterfly in a jar (videos)

We’ve shown you “robotic” butterflies before, but this one you can actually buy soon. The ChouChou looks a lot like the real thing, and it moves realistically, too.

The ChouChou will be released in Japan in September. For everyone living outside this country, the Japan Trend Shop just listed the butterfly for $76.
