Real Transformer

Another gadget post, I must be getting into the mood for another gadget purchase. This is supposed to be a video of demonstration of a Japanese robot that transforms from a dune buggy type model car into a biped robot and back again.

Something about it smells fake (the movement is a bit too smooth near the end), so it could be an viral marketing advert for the new "live action" Transformers movie. But if they could actually build this as a toy then every kid and adult who watched the Transformers will want one. Compare it to the success of the Robosapien and Roboraptor and you'll see the potential.
