This “insectoid” robot from French gadgeteer Parrot is wifi- and iDevice-controlled and can jump up to an incredible 80cm – enough to get onto a table – as well as race around indoors or out at an alarming 7kph. With its lit-up green eyes, it looks like something that’s escaped from a UFO. Entertaining and aggressive, it could get a certain type of party going, for sure.
