For now, we have a toy-sized transforming robot car that shape shifts from street racer to humanoid with silky ease. And for anyone who played with a toy that didn't quite do this as advertised, the future is now.
The Japanese robot was made by Kenji Ishida and JS Robotics. It has 22 servo motors that help make the transition from car to robot and back, and enable some serious boogieing on the dance floor (or table top).
This is said to be version 8 of the robot, with version 9 coming soon. Stay tuned.
