These Squidsoup 'Glowing Pathfinder Bugs' are projected creepy crawlies that can sense their surroundings. Despite the fact that they aren't real bugs, these projections can respond to ups and downs in their circling area, and can even be "picked up" when they crawl onto your hands.

Further, when two of these Squidsoup 'Glowing Pathfinder Bugs' get together, they "mate" and form a larger projection, making these crawling creatures very interesting to watch.

Implications - These virtual creepy crawlies are just another way that computers are adopting life like qualities and changing the way that life forms interact with one another. Whether you're intrigued or grossed out, the Pathfinder bugs are a larger than life experience.
