Picture of Remote Controlled Lobster
I know this wacky little kid, all he wanted for Christmas was a remote controlled lobster.
He asked his parents... he asked Santa.... he asked anyone who would listen.

Unfortunately...  "Your search - Remote Controlled Lobster - did not match any documents" and Santa nor his elves had the chops to pull of such a radical thing :(

Luckily for this little boy, he'sgot a crazy uncle who likes to make stuff !

I didn't have a long time to pull this off so i knew i wouldn't be able to construct this entire thing from scratch.

I started out looking for an existing RC vehicle that was somewhat lobster shaped.

I eventually came across the Tyco Terrainiac which was far more lobster shaped than i could have ever hoped for!

and guess what else?

IT WORKS ON LAND AND WATER!!!

Just like a real lobster.

Yes I'm looking in to patenting the concept for military applications ;)
You have something novel in the mechanism then?

well... it is a remote controlled lobster... i think that is novel enough.
It's not going to be a boring day for a patent-clerk when they see your application. Best wishes for your military-application.

I think red lobster should rename itself: RC Lobster!
