Video Hands-On: Hexbug Spiders

Hexbugs are all about fun. You’ve probably seen these things in stores for years. Radio Shack is the exclusive seller of the Spider model this holiday season and I must say, these things are fantastic. They should provide you with enough cubicle entertainment to more than justify the $24.99 price tag. Be warned though, there are only two discrete IR channels, which somewhat limits the size of your spider army to just a pair of marauding robots. The control schemes are simple enough that most 3-year-olds should be able to operate them if you wanna share. But you don’t have to share. This isn’t kindergarten.
