Never doubt the ingenuity of toy makers. Unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo Toy Show, toy-maker Takara Tomy has created a real-life transforming Chevrolet Camaro, although it isn't named Bumblebee. Along with Hasbro, Takara Tomy created the Transformers toys from decades past, and we can only imagine how much cooler our childhoods could have been if the Transformers we owned back then could have actually transformed on their own.

According to Gizmag, this Transformer is controlled using an iPhone, and it can switch from a Camaro – albeit not the prettiest we've ever seen – to a robot using "more than a dozen" servos. It looks like the car is able to drive, but the transformed robot is unable to walk or move. No word yet as to when this toy will go on sale or how much it will cost, but you can watch the transformation take place in the video posted below.

      Nobody makes miniature cars (or miniature anything) better than the Japs.

      Sorry, if I had a kid and his/her toys needed to be controlled by an iPhone, or any electronic device for that matter, I think it'd be time to rethink some toys. Hot Wheels and Legos it is.

      I'm far more interested in what sort of Liger that silhouetted Zoid is.

      Meh. The best toys are the ones that engage the kid. Their skill or imagination. This sucks in that regard pass
