Reminds me of Wall-E. Is this stronger than real cockroaches?

Robotic cockroaches will put all the real roaches out of work! Where is the union when we need it?

If only Ed Wood were around to film "Attack of the Robot Roaches." Bring back characters like Bella Lugosi and the cast of 'Plan 9 From Outer Space' and we would have a movie to remember.
Carl Hiaasen could write the screenplay, Music by Kinky Friedman.

I'm with Le Pet. And the cockroaches would be cheap dime store rubber ones being dragged by a almost invisible string across the floor.


Those are definitely not the sort of roaches one typically associates with UC Berekely...
