VIDEO: See A Home-Built Transforming Robot in Action!

Fully functioning model designed and built using off the shelf parts

How many of you wish you could build your own fully functioning Autobot or Decepticon? Alternatively, how many of you wish your old Transformers toys were fully automated and transformed at will? A Japanese robotics hobbyist has been posting videos of his creations on YouTube with some amazing results. Check out his latest build below and marvel at the intense amount of care and detail put into it. The robot was built with the aid of parts company JS Robotics and functions with a total of 22 servo motors and a modified Playstation Sixaxis controller for control of the robot.



The guy also has more videos demonstrating his other creations on his YouTube channel with plans to create another model that can fly. Let's hope he can pull it off.
