Brave Robotics creates working Transformer robot with Wi-Fi camera

Brave Robotics has created a real, working Transformer toy

Ever since Transformers debuted back in the 1980s, toy creators have been trying their best to create their own real Transformer that would be able to change between a robot to a vehicle of some sort with the simple push of a button. It looks like one group has finally been able to produce a fully-functioning Transformer that not only is able to function as a robot and vehicle separately, but it also has a few awesome surprises as well.




Brave Robotics spent months building its Transformer-style toy that can switch between a luxury vehicle to a standing robot complete with projectiles that can be shot out of each arm. The mechanics of the robot changing from a vehicle to a robot and vice versa seems a little sloppy as in the video below, you can see the robot wobbling all over the place.


Not only can the toy be used as either a vehicle or robot, but it also has a Wi-Fi camera that faces the correct way regardless if the toy is in its vehicle or robot form.


I'm not entirely sure what something like this would cost, but I would throw any amount of money at a toy manufacturer if they could build something like this for consumers. The only thing I'd ask is for the robot to look a little more neater, especially in its vehicle form.
