All we can say is, Michael Bay had better really step up his game for the sequel.
There are Transformers and there are Transformers. And while a 10-story Optimus Prime is OK, this $US42 import features a cassette deck (which, in a manner similar to Soundwave, ALSO features a Transformer), plus it can transform into a netbook. And while this “Qosimo” netbook doesn’t necessarily work, the body serves as a charming guise for the 4-port USB hub that lies beneath.
Now, I don’t want to blow everyone’s minds too hard before a weekend, but imagine, if you will, connecting this USB hub Transformer to more USB hub Transformers. Devastator, stand back. [Product via CraziestGadgets]
UPDATE: OK OK, while both the Autobots’ Blaster and the Decepticons’ Soundwave both had cassette deck capabilities, the robot does more closely resemble Blaster. I am SO SORRY. Stop emailing me, fellow geeks!
