Came here to say: Jerusalem Beetle, also known as a Potato Bug. I love them, my wife, not so much. [Clarification: I love my wife, she does not love these bugs]
Jerusalem crickets are awesome! These things appear to be the shed exoskeletons of cicadas, though. There were a zillion of 'em laying around when we had the big overlapping cicada hatch. I collected a few so my son can have an interesting science fair example in a few years; now I sort of wish I’d picked up a lot of 'em.

If he is comfortable having bugs all over, he must be a software developer.
Yeah, those are cicada shells. I live in Japan and they are all over the place right now. I grew up in cicada-free England so the variety of surprising insects is very exciting. The damn things are SO LOUD though.
