The Japanese robotics company Brave Robotics has created this miniature robot that transforms into a car. It has a built-in Wi-Fi camera allowing you to monitor it via a computer, and you can actually pick one up for the very reasonable price of $25,000. The company says it plans to build a full-sized transforming robot by 2030. [Design Taxi]
