Aquabots are Hexbugs that Learned to Swim

Hexbug Aquabot Clown FishJust because we’re headed toward an inevitable war with the robots, that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun along the way. We’ve told you about Hexbugs before – now they’re taking to the water, ready to inhabit a fish bowl near you.

Aquabots, the aquatic variant of Hexbugs, are available in either shark or clown fish varieties and in ten colors. Driven by electro-magnetic propulsion, they start swimming when they come in contact with water. These little guys are almost eerie in how well they mimic actually fish movements. The perfect solution for the person who wants a fish on their desk but just knows they’ll forget to feed it. You can find them at Red5.co.uk for £7.95.
