Dash Robotics' new robot bug

In the middle of preparations for our house move, this Kamigami robot bug kit arrived yesterday from Dash Robotics. Hudson, our eleven year old son, had contributed to their Kickstarter campaign (and they, very kindly, had contributed to his for the computer game he's creating, called Bunny Quest). 
We had also toured the Dash Robotics' facility in Silicon Valley last year, after meeting the team at Get Geeked in San Francisco. Hudson's Kamigami is one of the first 50 they've shipped!
This is the skin for the robot bug:

It took Hudson about an hour to put the robot bug together. 

And this is Kamigami in action, surprising one of our dogs...and dancing!
