The Product Of A Million Years Of Evolution (Video)

One of our favorite movies of all time is "M.I.B. - Men In Black". It's full of really hilarious scenes and delightful surprises. Things like suddenly finding out that what you think is a human being is actually a life sized android being controlled by a tiny little alien sitting at a driver's console in it's head...


We posted a while back about a mobile robot platform controlled by a cockroach running on a trackball. The bug watches an array of lights and moves it's legs trying to react to the display. Its legs turn the trackball which then controls the movement and direction of the robot platform.

Today, we managed to trackdown an online video on the Vimeo site showing the bug bot in action:

  1. Barely Legal Substance - The Roach-Mobile No, it's not your old Yugo. Fascinating video clip of Hertz's Roachbot in action. Very sci-fi, Giger-esque....
