Bandai's Hex Bugs React Better to Clapping than Stamping

These little bugs are the latest thing from Bandai.
There are six of them, and they are about as useful as a chocolate
teapot—but you can bet your can of Bug-Gone that entomologists
will be queueing round the block to pick up one of these critters when
they are released later this year.

Each one of the six is a different color and has a different name—Alpha, Bravo, Charley, etc. The $16 Hex
runs on a tiny battery, responds to handclaps and steers clear of
objects all by itself. Sounds rather like my man after I had
housetrained him.
