Takara Walkie Bits turn turtle


Takara is well known for its innovative approach to high-tech toys and the latest product of its fevered corporate imagination is no exception. The splendidly named Walkie Bits are claimed to be the world’s smallest programmable robots, which we’re not gonna argue with. Tap the shell once to make the plastic turtle walk, twice to dance and so on. For ¥1,300, there are worse ways to waste 10 minutes. The 15g bots come in a range of those colors that aren’t really colors – you know, melon, soda and all that jazz.
