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.

    It's certainly more than meets the eye....

    Also, who else here is a huge Transformers Prime fan and can't wait for season 3?

    This geek certainly would meet Sheldon's approval at least until they had a conversation and then he would appear inferior to his intellectual prowess.

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

    I would have been more excited if not for the music. :(

    Amazing robotics, though. Let's get him some grant money to do it to a full size car.
