This little crustacean comes from HEXBUG, the premiere maker of robots that are simultaneously creepy and adorable. It skitters around sideways just like a real crab, using sensors to look for shaded areas to hide in, presumably to escape the gaze of hungry robotic gulls. Make a loud sound and HEXBUG Crab will immediately run away until it finds a new sanctuary. It’s like having a terrified living crab running around in your home, except that you probably shouldn’t eat it after you catch it. The entire thing runs on a pair of cheap, button cell batteries, which are included.
