fuck transform (is that all you guys have on your minds?)
i think it's very impressive. especially the hand-stand and the bit how it gets up when it falls down in various different ways.
damn flexible joints on that thing!

An obsession perhaps, not to mention a drain on your wallet?

Or perhaps a new species of Robot Overlords?

Maybe this is the T-1 and 799 models later we'll be in big trouble?

This one is not bad too...

http://www.newlaunches.com/archives/khr ... _robot.php

"Here is an aspiring entry from the Robo-One competition in Japan the KHR-2 or "Layered X". The robot walks on 4 feet but can instantly transform into a robot walking on 2 feet. Further more a modified KHR-2 can also be attached too, kind of like a Mini-Me which sits on its shoulders and performs co-ordinated moves. "

These are very popular in Japan. A lot of people used to use servos from RC cars and planes. Now the servo manufacturers (like Futaba) are offering entire kits.
