Japanese Robot Builder Creates RC Transformer

Kenji Ishida posted a video that shows an RC car that changes into an upright robot and remain fully functional with movable legs and arms. The design requires 22 individual servos to make the transformation happen.

The car is reportedly not the first transformer Ishida has built. It appears to be the eight version that has improved with each iteration over a period of four years.

    This is awesome... it's one thing to see it in a movie CG; another to see it in real life.
