Transformers made REAL with the OmniZero.9 robot

What you see here is a video from the Robo-One humanoid robot competition in Japan, with a real-life transformer.  The Omnizero.9, designed by Takeshi Maeda at Vstone, is a 3.5 foot tall, 55 pound . As you can see from the above video, it can transform into a rolling vehicle, and can even hold a person’s weight on their shoulders.  We’ve got another video of the robot after the jump, where you can watch it beat down another robot. 3.5 foot tall, 55 pound robot beating up another robot. That’s one bad Deceptacon.

Talk about a breakthrough! This type 1 transformer is definitely the start of a new era, where robots won’t just roam around and help us, they will also be a form of transportation and delivery, taking any shape of a moving (or even flying) vehicle.

AI, I sure would like to meet you in 5 years 🙂
