New WowWee BugBots: Collect Your Own SwarmPosted by Peter Redmer on Thursday, 10 January 2008
Whoa, careful! That's a WowWee BugBot that just zoomed by - just try to catch it!
These ultra-slick little creatures are the newest edition to the Fun line of WowWee robots. Collectible and available in six different styles, you're sure to have a blast watching them buzz around in your living room.
There are two different species that you can adopt for your own: BugBots with tracks, and BugBots with wheels.
|Blitz, Trax, and Zook come in the track design - which allows them to easily climb over obstacles that stand in their way - even other BugBots.|
|Slider, Skipper, and Flapper employ the design with wheels, which allows them to swiftly and smoothly zip around the room.|
You can interact with your BugBot using the touch sensor, which will cause it to react like a real creepy crawlie, or watch as they automatically interface with other BugBots and create their own swarm.
