Remote controlled cockroach

Stumbled on this today, do not know how long it will work and yes there is a few seconds of a commercial...but it is a radio controlled insect, and a huge one at that.

The funny part is near the end there is some discussion of how there are those who are concerned for the bug...

That is the funny-scary part.

I saw that report too!

"DO NOT STEP ON THE RESCUE ROACH!!"

LOL! But I think it is not because they are worried about the insect, but rather that they don't want you to crush the GPS transmitter attached to the roach that just "found" you. They will be tracking where the bug goes to try and locate the person that needs to be rescued.
