New Tachikoma spider robot on the loose

Ghost in the Shell fans, unite. Your favorite killer spider
is back once more, as Bandai is delivering a newfangled version which
stands 9.5-centimeters high and connects to your PC via USB.
Apparently, this creature comes bundled with software which enables it
to play back voice messages and fire up mini-games when it's not
emitting sounds through the built-in speaker or catching your eye with
its integrated LEDs. Unfortunately, it looks like this creature won't
actually be uncaged until next February, but that'll give you some time
to save up the ¥13,440 ($115) that you'll need come launch day.
