Here’s a Driving, Fighting DIY Transformers Robot from Japan! [Video]
text size: A- A+
The Japanese are quite into giant fighting robots and superpower heros in anime cartoon, so it’s not surprising somebody tried to make a real transformer.
You can forget about your manually operated toy, this thing does it all by itself, including fist-pumping the air, transforming from robot to car and walking.
The machine is built by a company called Brave Robotics and was on sale at Maker Fair for a staggering JPY 1,980,000, which is about $24,000.
If you’re thinking that nobody would ever pay that much for a toy, you’d be totally wrong. This is Japan, and they have life-sized, six-story robots there.
