This Real Transformer Toy Amazingly Shapeshifts On Its Own

One second the toy rolls up as a car, the next it’s automatically transformed itself into an upright fighting machine that can move around, tip toe and deliver uppercuts. It’s unbelievably awesome, and it’s what every kid (and adult) should want for Christmas or their birthday, or any day, really.

The toy was built by Kenji Ishida and JS Robotics and has 22 servo motors that control its transformation and movements. Just seeing it walk around on YouTube is already better than that last Transformers movie without Megan Fox. [NicoVideo via YouTube via The Awesomer]
