    That is cool!!

    Now make it fold back up differently, so it becomes a useful portable gaming device.

    I can't wait for the day when your PDA is an actual mini-robot assistant that rides around in your pocket. :D

    If he does that with a functional mobile, he will be the King of Geeks and I will kneel humbly before him.

    Engadget is wrong. I did enough research with this one to find that out. Plus, if you look at the pictures, there's no PCB present in any of them. It would take an entire reworking of the circuit boards to put them into many pieces to get it to work.

    Chobits?

    If you machined the parts and had wires running through the universal joints, and did a multi-layer PCB etch it certainly is possible. might be an interesting project to pick up in my spare time.... :naughty:

    [edit:]damn you, hourbeforedawn, you beat me to it!

    There're something need to be clarified.

    First, he is a Chinese.
    Second, the original artical says that he actually not modded a Transformer, but a GunDam.
    ( In fact, he started to make it far before the advent of the film Transformers.)

    Well transformers existed long before the film so that isn't particuarly relavant, but yes, gundam is far more likely.
