A transforming car isn’t something we would normally cover but it is Friday (for me) and there is no news. Anyway, the robot is controlled by a PlayStation SIXAXIS controller and feeds video to an iPad – so that makes it a PS3/iPad accessory and therefore it falls under the remit of TSA.
Say hello to the ‘BRAVEROBOTICS 1/12 scale Transform Robot Version 7.2’ or, as I call him, Bob. The Japanese company unveiled a preview of their newest model and will show the latest revision at the Google sponsored ‘Maker Faire’ in Tokyo next week.
Bob is a fully functioning remote controlled car which at a press of a button transforms into a fully functioning robot. Watch the close up views of the transformation sequence and you will see that it is an incredibly complex procedure with panels sliding about and wheels popping into place.
Once in robot mode Bob can walk forwards and backwards, move both arms and best of all, fire missiles. Both modes feature a wireless video feed which can be displayed on an iPad.
A wireless camera, a speedy car and a missile firing robot all in one – cats of the world, prepare to be terrorised!
