At some point along the line, it's the dream of most young boys (and a few girls) to have their very own transforming robot, perhaps after watching popular Japanese mech animes, playing a game or, most recently, watching a Hollywood Transformers film. But the toy industry has spat out cheap models that either fail to transform at all or require complex, manual steps, all in the name of profit margins.
The future is now here, however, with the creation of what is hoped to be the production-ready, Brave Robotics-branded 1/12-scale transforming robot; a gadget that is both an RC car and a robot with a fully-automated transformation sequence, advanced movement and control.
This hopefully final iteration features a WiFi webcam and a 3D-printed shell. If that wasn't enough note the missile launchers present in each arm. So far, creator Mr Kenji Ishida has only 10 of these bad boys for sale in the initial batch, with pricing upon request. We do hope very much to see this product available in the mass-market soon.
