RoboRoach – turn a household pest into your cyborg servant

RoboRoach in use

Cyborgs are awesome in movies but we aren’t exactly all the way to the half human/half robot future just yet. If you’re wondering what it would be like to have your own cyborg buddy though, the RoboRoach can give you some insight. It’s the cyborg roach you control with your phone.

I’m not going to lie, I’m a little bit skeeved out by this because, well, cockroach but with the addition of some hardware and a pretty high constitution, you can control the movements of one roach with your smartphone. This kit includes one reusable “backpack” and the parts to turn three roaches into your willing cyborg army. You have to buy your own cockroach though.

Here’s the thing, this isn’t just a snap on gadget, you’ve got to get in there and perform insect surgery to attach the parts. Which is more than this writer can handle but if you’re up to the task, you can create a nice little spy buy for . . . whatever you would use this for. If you’re really curious, the RoboRoach is $109.99.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
