Real Transformers

These Vids bought a smile to my face because they made me realise how influential the original Transformers cartoons from the 80's must have been! It is crazy to think that in the last 20-30 years the kids that grew up watching the cartoons are now making these robots a reality!

It was amazing-enough to witness what these machines may eventually look like in the recent Transformers Feature film, which stunned us with its detail and mind-boggling animation...but to see any form of working real-life transformer takes everything to a whole new level.

A recent article on MSN cited that AI technology would soon surpass the capabilities of man..perhaps in the next 20 years. Couple this with a further 20 years of enhancing these small transformer robots and we could be looking at a world with Transformers sooner than we think!
